True to its commitment of providing borderless possibilities in education, Malayan Colleges Mindanao (MCM) partners with C&E Educational Solutions Group, Arduino, and LJCreate to become the first school in the Philippines to feature the iOT-enhanced Engineering construction kit and CTC101 Creative Technologies in its new Robotics Laboratory. The equipment will be used by MCM Senior High School, Engineering, and Computer Science students to bolster their skills in solving real-world problems using a combination of programming and design skills. According to Engr. Dodjie S. Maestrecampo, MCM EVP and COO, “The acquisition of C&E MAKERCE, Arduino, and LJCreate equipment is a testimony of MCM's commitment to provide its students world-class, excellent, and relevant tools for active learning. MCM students will be much benefited by being the first in the Philippines to utilize these tools to enhance even further their critical thinking, creativity, and collaborative skills"

These award-winning, active learning solutions are tailored to provide a comprehensive learning program for MCM students wherever they are in their educational journey towards learning STEAM applications. So, whether students are newbies or experienced in programming and designing solutions, appropriate support will always be available for them in using these state-of-the art tools through the guidance of expertly-trained faculty members at MCM.

“Together with Arduino, we at C&E are committed in supporting MCM’s STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math with Integrated Arts) programs for its teachers and students. We are excited to see how MCM leads the pack in creating the next generation of great minds and inventors.” - Gerric C. Gomez, Vice President for Strategic Partnership and Growth Markets of C&E Publishing, Inc.

MCM’s strong partnership with the leading providers of these educational solutions promises current and future students continued development of its laboratories to equip them with skills they need to be able to perform and compete globally.
