Bringing science alive for students


In modern world of advance technology everyone likes Bringing science alive for students. In a recent development the popular National Science Experiment (NSE) has roped in 43,140 students from primary schools to junior colleges so far and actively spurred them to begin their own novel projects.

The eminent chief executive officer Low Teck Seng of the National Research Foundation (NRF) conveyed that the project focus to promote science among students through experiential learning. It is also revealed that they wish to get them excited about science and technology, and make it real and alive for them. Moreover under the familiar citizen science experiment launched this year, the passionate students wear a pocket sensor to capture data such as the number of steps they take or their respective travel patterns.

Surprisingly the respective participation figure this year has been lower than the target of 100,000 for the year. The organizers conveyed that this could since the experiment coincided with the year-end exams. It is proud to note that NSE is organized by the familiar NRF and the Ministry of Education, in efficacious partnership with the Singapore University of Technology and Design, Science Centre Singapore and the Agency for Science, Technology and Research.

It was actually found, for example, that the average number of steps taken by a student each day was 5,853 and that nearly 87 per cent of participants went to school by walking or taking the bus and/or train.  It is also expected that students would utilize the device to not only measure temperature or humidity, but also learn about things such as the concept of big data or how to reduce their carbon footprints. It was about 20 students who went to Gardens by the Bay to learn more about the temperature and humidity differences between the Cloud Forest and Singapore’s urban environment. In modern times it is well noted that global concept of Study in Singapore has become familiar among students and parents.
