“As a parent, I understand the importance of a well-rounded education. With the HP Little Makers, we want to show how technology and creativity can go hand-in-hand with educating the future of Malaysia at home and at school”, said Fayza Amin, Managing Director of HP Malaysia.
HP Malaysia’s Little Makers challenge is designed for parents, teachers and their young makers, creators and thinkers to play and learn together while sharing their creations with friends and family. Together with HP’s DeskJet printers, HP aims to help children discover their inner potential and talent.
