Summary Every second year in Malaysia, The “Search for SEAMEO Young Scientist Congress (SSYS)” is held at the Regional Education Centre for Science and Maths (RECSAM). Students (aged 12-16) from twelve ASEAN countries present their scientific solutions to pressing local and community problems. “SSYS aims to encourage young learners to apply scientific and mathematical knowledge into technological problem-solving activities to address sustainable development.” (SSYS Information booklet, 2012). Independent judges from Australia, and several other countries make assessments on the students’ written solutions (academic report), their presentation of their scientific approach and any subsequent models the students produce. The projects represent a technological approach to solving a community need/ problem, with the construction of a device or model to illustrate the students’ solution. Deakin researchers, Wendy Jobling and Coral Campbell will present examples of some of these projects and discuss the possibility of assessing the technological aspects of the project, drawing on research into the relationship between science, technology, engineering and problem-based learning.
