I.N.S.P.I.R.E. The Scientist in Me

(INquiry Science Projects Involving Research and Experiments)

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)

Primary 3 students apply what they have learnt about the diversity of materials into their Project Work. Students have to work in groups to create a boat that could hold a 50g weight and be kept afloat on water.

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.


Apprentice Scientist (P4 Guided inquiry)

Students learnt the importance of producing sufficient food to be self-sustainable and in turn, contributing to food security in Singapore. The hydroponics project enable students to experience harvesting vegetables such as water spinach and kangkong, taking note of the ideal conditions for plant growth.


Master Scientist (P5 Guided Inquiry)

Primary 5 students are involved in the Marine Conservation Project Work. They are led on a learning journey to S.E.A. Aquarium to observe the behaviour of marine animals and learn about Man’s activities that can cause them to become endangered. Upon their return, students will convey a marine conservation message through posters, poems and stories. The students will also collaborate to create a water filtration system using different types of materials to turn polluted water to clean water.

D.I.S.C.O.V.E.R Programme

(Developing Inquirers of ScienCe, InnOVators of Experimental Research in Keming Primary School)

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.
