12yo KL boy rockets to victory at World Robotics Championship in India


In the latest episode of young Malaysians that bring honour to the country, 12-year-old Danish Irfan Muslim literally built a champion rocket.

The young student from SK Tun Hussein Onn participated in the World Robotics Championship held in India with his father Muslim Tamsir, who is a teacher at the school.

Danish, the winner of Malaysian water rocket championships in 2018 and 2019, took home first place at his first ever international event.

The 38-year-old Science and IT teacher said that all the materials used in the competition were brought over from Malaysia.

The winning rocket was built, fixed, and launched ad-hoc, but surprisingly stayed in the air for the longest time at about 11 seconds.

Congratulations to Danish and Muslim for the fantastic effort on the world stage!
