 Surprising Chemistry Workshop 


The NUS Chemistry Week was held from 1 to 9 June, concluding with the Surprising Chemistry Workshop in the Science Demonstration Laboratory. The closing workshop was an eye-opener for the participants where students learnt about super absorbent polymers and how they help diapers retain liquid.

Biology Stretch Programme

  • To enhance students’ interest in the learning of Biology concept through authentic learning. 
  • To inform students on relevance of Biology in every day life. 
  • To inspire selected Secondary 2 Express students to pursue combined and pure Biology at ‘O’ level and beyond.

Chemistry Stretch Programme

  • To enhance students’ interest in the learning of Chemistry concept through authentic learning as students get to formulate perfumes at Science Centre Singapore.
  • To inspire higher ability Secondary Two students in Chemistry, enabling them to pursue pure Chemistry at ‘O’ Level and beyond.
  • Students get to gift their formulated perfumes to their family members to express their gratitude to them. 

 Green Lesson

  • To inspire students to play a part in the green movement in the Singapore context.
  • To increase awareness in students about the relevance of Science and technology in their everyday lives. 
  • To inculcate in students the value of using Science and technology to improve the lives of mankind.
  • Provide an opportunity for selected IPW-Science students to enjoy a rich authentic learning through an experiential learning approach. 
  • Exercise the pursuit of science as self-directed learners and in a collaborative environment. 
  • Gain exposure in experimental science through participating in the conference/ competition (have a chance to hear from students from other schools on their research projects and attend science workshops during the conference). 
  • Share their research findings and interest their school mates and the community in how to better our lives through science 
  • Engage in learning beyond the classroom and syllabuses (serves as a stretched programme for high-ability students) 
  • Provide an opportunity for the students to explore science in the real-world context.

  • To ignite students’ passion in Science through student-centered science-related activities 
  • To provide a platform for the students to learn a scientific concept through a series of fun and engaging challenges.
  • To reinforce GRC STAR–DOs through science-related activities.
 Physics Stretch Programme

  • To enhance students’ interest in the learning of Physics concept through authentic learning.
  • To inform students on relevance of Physics in every day life.
  • To inspire selected Secondary 2 Express students to pursue combined and pure Physics at ‘O’ level and beyond.
Science Buskers 

Science Buskers Festival is organized as a competition, this event serves as an excellent platform to spread key messages relating to the importance of inspiring an interest in science. During the competition, contestants will do a "show-and-tell" on any science topic, and judging will be based on audiences' votes and judges' scores. 

This year, two teams of Secondary 3 NA students participated in the competition and managed to qualify for the finals. 
After a gruelling 2 days of intense busking, one of our teams managed to clinch the Judges Choice Award - Proof of Concept.

  • To engage pupils through inter-disciplinary student-centred activities and to provide an opportunity for pupils to explore the inter-connectedness of disciplines with respect to environment issues.
