NUS Science Discovery Camp (14-16 Dec) – Best chance to see how it is like studying at NUS Science Faculty!

Budding scientists, have you wondered how it would like to study in the Science faculty of NUS? Now’s your chance!!

The Science Discovery Camp, developed for students from 14 to 17 years old, is aimed at piquing the interest of students in science and showcasing how science concepts are applied in the real world, for example in the research and fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the programme, conducted “live” over Zoom, participants will also

  • be guided to build their own spectroscope (the experiment kit will be mailed to all participants)
  • learn how to build models using high school mathematics,
  • gain insights into epidemic spread and control.

This programme is taught by experienced professors from the NUS Faculty of Science, and will also provide science enthusiasts with a teaser of how the discipline is taught at NUS.

Should you be sending your toddler to school?

When your child is no longer an infant, there comes a point in time when you will start wondering if you should be sending your child to school. For working parents who have no one to take care of their toddlers, the answer is a little clearer. Sending the toddler to a full-time childcare centre is often the only choice.

In that case, should a toddler go to school? Btw when I say school, I don’t mean some academic oriented thing. Nowadays, everyone knows that the best way for toddlers to learn is through play, so most schools provide a play-based learning environment.

  2. Enrichment classes
  3. 2 or 3 hour Play Groups
  4. Full-time Childcare Centre
