Nanyang Polytechnic – Yishun Town Secondary Science & Technology Research Programme

As part of the Science Talent Development Programme, Yishun Town (YTSS) has partnered Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) to provide our students who are keen to further their interest in science with an opportunity to hone their research skills through the NYP-YTSS Science & Technology Research Programme.

The objectives of the Research Programme are to:

a) generate interest in scientific and technological research work
b) provide a platform  for students to learn from educators in Institutes of Higher Learning
c) develop students’ research and communication skills in a meaningful and interesting way

In this programme, selected students who show an aptitude for science are mentored by the lecturers from Nanyang Polytechnic. Our students carry out research in an area of their choice and are guided through the research process by their mentors over a period of 6-9 months. The Research Programme culminates in a Science & Technology Symposium where all research groups share their project findings with their peers from other schools.

These are some of the projects done by our students in 2013

  • Nanoparticle and Wounding Response
  • Time Limit for Safe Consumption
  • Screen Un-Lock for Mobile Devices
