Singapore Science and Engineering Fair
The Singapore Science and Engineering Fair(SSEF) is a national competition organised by the Ministry of Education (MOE), the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and the Science Centre Singapore (SCS). It is intended for students who have conducted research over the past year to showcase their findings.
On 10th March 2016, 8 research groups from Anglo-Chinese Junior College were shortlisted for the final judging of SSEF in Singapore Science Centre. We are pleased to announce the following SSEF winners:
Chen Zhezheng, 2SA1 Silver
Zhang Mengxin, 2SA4 Merit
Georgie Lee, 2SA1 Bronze
Colleen Yeow Hui Shiuan, 2SB1 Bronze, SAAS Poster Award for Science Communication
Chou Ying Yi, 2SC6 Bronze
Cynthia Chia, 2SC1 Bronze

“The SSEF competition was an eye-opener for me. During the competition, we met judges who were experts in their field. Many of them provided feedback for future experiments and explained how we could improve our experimental setup. It was very enlightening to hear how we could otherwise perform our experiment to get more accurate results. Participating in this competition also allowed me to share my study with others, which is an essential part in science research. The public viewing day also gave us the opportunity to learn more about other participant’s projects, all of which were very inspiring. This truly has been a great opportunity!” Colleen Yeow, 2SB1

“SSEF was a great opportunity for me to hone my presentation and interaction skills along with confidence. It was an exhilarating moment during which I explained the workings of my project and the mathematics behind it and responded to the judges’ queries. Learnt a lot, I did, with regards to how I may improve an aspect of my data presentation and explain mathematics with greater clarity to a layman. Overall, SSEF was a beneficial event which exposed me to various research fields and projects and in so doing deepened my interest in research.” Georgie Lee, 2SA1
