In 2014, HCI STEM Programme continue to grow from strength to strength getting more partners to be

involved in Sabbaticals, project mentoring and ad-hoc science lectures. It is a year of consolidation and strengthening of our partnerships with our partner organizations. Our genre of STEM in 2014 has now expanded to analyzing chemical contents such as paint, hydrophobic sprays to 3D printing and green technologies e.t.c.

Our valued partners are the ones who provide our students the unique learning experiences. In return, we would like all our partners to be recognized for their outreach in education. Through our students’ creations via projects and research, we hope to create a platform for the world to see the efforts put in by our partners. Henceforth, in 2015, the HCI STEM programme would like to focus on creating unique engineering experiences for our students together with our valued partners.

Quoting our Minister of Education during the MediaCorp News 8 on 24 October, “that teachers and principals played a crucial role in helping Singaporeans look beyond academic qualifications and build skills, pursue interests and passions, learn throughout their life, and understand the value of all types of jobs”. Hwa Chong hope to achieve this through our STEM Programme supported by our partners to provide that unique experience of developing skills and passions.
