Science Research at ACJC

The Nanyang Technological University, or NTU, annually offers the Nanyang Research Programme (NRP) to worthy students to embark on a research project. Of the 10 students who were selected for the NRP, 7 were involved in projects which were found worthy of the gold and silver awards presented by NTU.

Some of our students were also involved in the annual Singapore Science and Engineering Fair (SSEF). The SSEF is organised by the Ministry of Education, Agency for Science, Technology & Research (ASTAR) and the Science Centre of Singapore, to select the best research projects by students in Singapore. It is the most prestigious event in Singapore for students who are involved in science research.

We are pleased that of the projects submitted by ACJC, 4 were selected to enter the SSEF, of which 1 was awarded the Certificate of Merit.
