JOHOR BAHRU: It was a “mental block” start but that did not hold the SMK Mohd Khalid team back from winning the upper secondary category of the RHB-The Star Mighty Minds Challenge here yesterday.
The team – comprising M. Sooriya Kumar, C. Sathesh and Izzuddin Ismail – made the cut to represent Johor at the national-level contest in Kuala Lumpur next month.
Sooriya said the team only got its act together in the last 10 minutes of the second stage and managed to construct the required sliding projector.
“We remembered what our Physics teacher taught us and used our imagination to build it. We recovered from our earlier setback and did our best,” he said, describing the win as a “miracle”.
He said the win had given the team the courage to go to Kuala Lumpur and win at the national level.
