General Information

At the Junior College, students learn physics through a variety of formal and informal activities. Lectures, seminars, tutorials and laboratory sessions provide the backbone of the Advanced level course, however, learning physics at the Junior College goes beyond this. Over the years, the Physics Department has sought to organize a number of activities that give students the opportunity to link what they are learning with real life applications, to assess possible future career choices and opportunities, and to get a wider perspective of what science is all about.

A number of activities are organized regularly while others depending on the circumstances and opportunities that arise from time to time. Students will be asked to inform their parents/guardians about their participation and to obtain their consent.


Types of Activities

The following is a list of some of the activities which we organised or participated in:

  • Participation in the NSTF Science Forum
  • Participation in the water rocket challenge
  • Participation in design a poster competition
  • Participation in astronomy related activities
  • Science and Technology Week

These activities are advertised on the notice-boards and this website so do make sure you visit them regularly. Since the number of students is usually kept low, such activities are usually very quickly oversubscribed.

Upcoming Activities (Information and Application Forms)
