Hi. I am Professor Puan Sri Dr. Rohaty Mohd Majzub. Currently I am a Professor in Faculty of Education.I love to interact with everyone and learn something new. I believe in meeting a new friend everyday.However at times i am disheartened when other bloggers used my website to advertise their websites on google or abuse my website by changing the content of my articles.This is an unprofessional act. I hope this will stop. Thanks to those who participate in this website.I really appreciate your time and ideas.You are invited to visit my other websites: http://rohaty.edu.my http://rohaty-school-readiness.com http://rohaty.keciciran.edu.my


I am looking forward to share my personal and professional knowledge and experiences related to social-educational issues and challenges locally and internationally. I believe that much can be generated and learn cross culturally deriving from the varied diversity found in the education systems. Thus i welcome any thoughts, ideas, opinion and feedback on any educational issue which can contribute to both understanding theories and building educational implications. Issues can be very controversial but we have to address them open mindedly and creatively.My present interests are in child development, adolescent psychology,educational governance and policies and the science and art of teaching and research.Once again you are most welcome!!!!

Parents can help children develop a sense of science at home.After all the home or house can be a science laboratory too.Why not? The atmosphere is more informal and cosy and human interactions are likely to be warmer right? So we can educate our little minds to become young scientists. Like in my house we have Sofea Marissa, Sulaiman, Bashira, Maryam ,and last but not least Imran who is just after one year old. Children have open minds are just very curious and very happy to know more about something.So why not try a few experiments to teach concepts in Science even before they go the Elementary School. Said Chapman ""Are you bonkers about Biology,crazy about chemistry or mad about meteorology?A fanatical physicist or avid astronomer?These experiments can answer the famous W Questions such as Why?What?When?What will happen What if?. Lets say the kids want to be chemists .Ok we will have the Make the Starch exsperiment. I visited Petronas Petroscience and bought some Polmer Growing Toys. Wow we watched them grow as well diminish in size in plain and salty water. Shall we as the young girls to bake Gingerbreadman cookies?Thus there are many wonderful experiments to delight the young minds. Be be careful make sure they are conducted under mom's or dad's supervision. Happy Experimenting and Let me Know the Results


  1. Prof, you have highlighted a point that most people have overlooked. Science (and even Math)can be learnt at home too and not only in schools. Since almost everyone is crazy over cupcakes now, a simple cupcake baking class in the kitchen can teach a child math (weighing & measuring the ingredients) and science (what happens when the cupcakes are baked in the oven). And decorating the cupcakes colorfully certainly tops the fun!
    Anyway, drop in at Kinokuniya the next time you are at KLCC. They're selling small submarines which can be filled with baking powder and the submarines can really move when put in water!

  2. the idea of creating a young scientist at home sounds interesting...i remembered those days when i was young, i used to play with my cousins, and there was a day that we tried to fill up a basin with water and we managed to finish the task after exhausting orselves to the dying breath...it was so fun, but that happened when we was small..children nowadays are creative, and they are a lot of merchandises out there that will help them in learning science...all it left to do is the parents' roles themselves, to equip their children with these apparatus, so that they will grow up as a good scientist...-a118958
