Science Achievements at ACJC

Energy Innovation Challenge

Three teams, led by Mr William Toh, represented ACJC in the inaugural Energy Innovation Challenge in July 2015. This Challenge was organised by the Science Centre Singapore and the Institution of Engineers, Singapore, for students to work with engineering and business mentors to design and invent products which use alternative sources of energy.

Of the 31 teams which competed in the Secondary and Junior College category, we are very proud of our 3 teams, who won the 1st, 3rd and Merit Awards. The teams received their awards at the National Engineers' Day 2015, from the Guest-of-Honour, Mr Heng Swee Keat, Minister for Education.
