KLESF: The Fair 2015 was held from 30 October to 1 November 2015 at the MINES International Exhibition and Convention Centre (MIECC), Kuala Lumpur. The Fair promoted interest and publicity in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education among students, the industry and the public. UTAR, ASEAN Academy of Engineering and Technology (AAET), Malaysia Industry-Government Group for High Technology (MIGHT), and Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM) jointly organised KLESF: The Fair 2015, and it was supported by the Ministry of Education Malaysia (MOE), Akademi Sains Malaysia (ASM), Majlis Profesor Negara (MPN), ACCCIM, Malaysia Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), and Institut Fizik Malaysia (IFM).

The Fair showcased hundreds of experiments, exhibits and creations presented by individuals, schools, colleges, universities, corporations, NGOs, ministries, organizations and international partners. It was a showcase of amazing creativity and innovation involving multiple mental and physical skills in engagement and concentration in execution especially the experiments. The Fair was a hive of activities with much enthusiasm and energetic presentations from the participants.

Among the many interesting creations at the Fair was the Maze Runner-The Robot Trials, a fun robot car race in a maze set up by UTAR students from the Lee Kong Chian Faculty of Engineering and Science.  This group of engineering students consisting of Jun Kang, Zhi Hao, Shawn Goh, Saw Chia Sheng, Steven Lee, Tan Lit Wei, and Chuah Chun Wei built five robot cars in three days to showcase at the Fair. The robot car was designed and built to use the mobile android operating system which controls the car movements using wireless Bluetooth technology. Anyone with a mobile android phone can just install the apps, customize application and connect to the robot car to control the car through the maze without the need for a special remote controller.
