Established in 2018, Jom Science, Malaysia! is the latest initiative by the Malaysian Biotechnology Information Centre (MABIC). We aim to use the robustness of social media to promote science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in Malaysia.
In Malaysia, "Jom" is an informal way of inviting someone to participate in an activity. Here, we are inviting scientists to promote their work in Malaysia, and welcoming the general public to embrace science in the country.
Just like neurons, a society that is science literate will be quick to respond to changes, agile and be able to make informed decisions. Jom Malaysia, let us be a science literate society!
