I.N.S.P.I.R.E. The Scientist in Me
STEM Education is incorporated in Project Work which is carried out from Primary 3 to Primary 5. It engages students in understanding the science concepts and teaches them skills that is applicable in the future aside from immediately applying them to the relevant aspects of their lives now.
Students use the Engineering Design Process to think of the data they needed to gather and using the data gathered, to help them create a prototype, which involves the use of Microbit. Scientific process skills such as controlling variables, interpreting data, planning and designing investigations for problem solving are being emphasized in the process.
Junior Scientist (P3 Guided inquiry)
Students have to make a careful selection of the materials required to create the boat during Science lessons. They complete the project within a month before presenting their finished products to the class. During the presentation, they explain their choice of materials and how these materials and design of the boat allow it to stay afloat in times of natural disasters.

D.I.S.C.O.V.E.R. programme provides an opportunity for students to gain a deeper understanding of how Science and Technology can shape their intellectual and cultural environment. Students are equipped with skills to be reflective, ethical citizens and critical thinkers while engaging in environment-related issues.
This programme provides an authentic learning experience which focusses on the impact of pollution in our natural environment. Under the guidance of experts, two scientists from A*STAR will mentor the Primary 5 students to study about the environmental issues that Singapore faces.
