Nanyang Poly’s Science & Technology Challenge STEMs interest in Science through collaboration
Published on 10 Sep 2019

Dear Media Friends,

Multi-school teams let students understand how science can bring people together

In its 11th run, Nanyang Polytechnic grows secondary school students’ interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) with multi-school teams for the first time ever.

Close to 1,000 students from 47 secondary schools will engage various scientific theories to program robotic cars in a treasure hunt, construct miniature airplanes powered by two rubber bands and fulfil other exciting tasks. This year, the School of Engineering (SEG) introduces a new twist to the game – the secondary school students must work together in mixed-school teams in one of its nine categories. This, the organiser believes, will let the students understand first-hand how STEM can be the common language to bring people together in a quest for solutions.

We would like to invite your reporter and cameraman/camera crew to join us at the Science & Technology Challenge 2019 to find out how students apply their science and technology skills and knowledge to real-life situations. Media interviews with winning teams and schools can also be arranged.
