Passionate Learners, Scientific Inquirers, Responsible Stewards of the Environment

We believe that when students learn science with passion, they can achieve more. In alignment with the Science Curriculum Framework, the spirit of scientific inquiry is central to our department’s progammes. Together with a passionate heart for learning and a curious mind for inquiring, our science students can grow into responsible stewards of the environment.   

(A) To stimulate passion in the learning of Science through exploratory activities and competitions   

 C.B Paul Science Quiz | NYP Science and Technology Challenge | Hai Sing Exploration Week (HEW) Mangrove Swamp Trail   

 C.B Paul Science Quiz 


Organised by ACJC Science and Maths Council, secondary school students are invited to prove their prowess in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics and computer science through a series of tests, for more often than not these questions posed go beyond textbook content.  


NYP Science & Technology Challenge

This is an event where students learn to apply science concepts through experimenting. Through experimenting, they learn to try, fail, and try again.  The organisers are constantly creating novel tasks each year. Some of the challenges include: to build a bridge that can hold the greatest weight, to design a catapult that can project ping pong balls with accuracy, to create the fastest wind powered vehicle


HEW Mangrove Swamp Trail

Students are brought to the mangrove swamp to appreciate biodiversity and the importance of the conservation of environment. During the trail, students complete tasks at checkpoints on their iPads


(B) To stretch strong Science students as Scientific Inquirers through research projects and competition

Innovation Programme (IvP) | East Zone A*STAR Science Fair Competition @ VJC | Singapore Junior Chemistry Olympiad

Innovation Programme (IvP)

Organised by the Gifted Education Branch, participants work actively on a self-selected project to develop solutions for real world problems through working with innovation-mentors who usually comes from Institutes of Higher Learning. IvP culminates in the Young Innovators' Fair, where selected participants showcase their projects through a stage presentation and poster exhibition. A prototype of the product, developed by the pupil(s), would also be featured in the Fair.



East Zone A*STAR Science Fair Competition @ VJC

The East Zone A*STAR Science Fair is held every year to give secondary school students the experience of conducting an investigative science project and provide students with a platform to exhibit and share their findings with others.


Singapore Junior Chemistry Olympiad

The Singapore Junior Chemistry Olympiad (SJChO) provides a platform for all upper secondary students to challenge themselves in their chemical knowledge and skills. It also seeks to promote the excitement in learning and doing Chemistry as well as to identify and develop chemistry talents.   

The Dean’s List students from Secondary 3 and 4 Express students are selected, and training is provided for them. In Round One, the students will sit for two hour theory paper comprising Multiple Choice Questions. Shortlisted students from Round One will then participate in a Practical component of Round Two.
