Science teacher Gomathy Sankaran, who already has a number of local and international awards under her belt, has done it again!
This time, the educator at the SJK (T) Kangkar Pulai in Johor, has bagged the Asia's Women Super Achievers Award 2020-21 conferred by Asia Awards, presented by RULA Awards.
The announcement was made on the official Facebook page of Asia Awards earlier this week.
To date, Gomathy has won over 120 awards - 72 international and 50 local, for her various inventions over the years.
Early last month, the 48-year-old was honoured as Outstanding Science Teacher of the Year by Global Education, a non-governmental organisation based in India.
One of her inventions - an all-natural herbal useful in restoring hair growth, bagged a host of awards last year, and early this year.
Besides, the mother of two has also invested a mobile application, which acts as a library for postgraduate students, who may face issues keeping tabs on their notes and materials.
Gomathy's inventions also picked up the World Invention Intellectual Property Associations 2020 Special Award and Toronto International Society of Innovation and Advanced Skills (TISIAS) Special Award last year.
Despite the success of her inventions, Gomathy reportedly has no intention to turn them to business, as her main aim is to educate.
"I get my ideas from simple everyday things and sometimes it will pop up while I'm interacting with my pupils in class, and I'll get them to experiment with me to make the classes more interesting," she was quoted telling raaga.my.
Gomathy's innovation does not stop at the clasroom. When the Movement Control Order (MCO) was implemented last year, she started giving online classes and assignments for the kids, and even started a YouTube channel where her students share their own experiments from home!
Congratulations teacher on your continuous victories! May you be blessed with more brilliant ideas to carry the country's flag in the global arena for many more years to come.
