Written by 

Ten students from Seri Mulia Sarjana School’s Secondary Section attended the NUS Science Camp hosted by the prestigious National University of Singapore from 24th to 28th June.

The objective of the NUS Science Summer Camp is to stir curiosity, foster inquiry and inculcate a lifelong fascination for Science at the undergraduate level. The Science program is jointly managed by NUS Extension, Faculty of Science and APCME Asia Pacific Centre of Management Education.   National University of Singapore is a leading global university centred in Asia, ranked 25th in the world and 2nd in Asia (QS 2012 rankings) with over 37,000 students from 100.

The 5-day Science Camp is filled with seminars by university professors, workshops at state-of-the-art laboratories and visits to research.   The program will give the students a flavor of Singapore and the campus-life of NUS, including activities such as analyzing DNA to solve crime cases, working on electron microscopes in a Nanotechnology workshop, field-visit to mangrove ecosystems and visits to the famous tourist attractions in Singapore.

The SMSS team is accompanied by teacher K. Sowmiya. They had the opportunity to participate in NUS Science Summer Camp Quiz to win exciting prizes and were awarded with certificates. For the SMSS students, the NUS Science Summer Camp is a ‘once-in-a-lifetime experience’ that gives them a peek into the opportunities, the possibilities and wonders of the world of science.
