A day with Uncle Sam
Exciting demonstrations and special classes are conducted during the day to inspire the participants to observe and explore essential elements of science in the school curriculum. These activity sessions also aim to build confidence in the learners through a clear and better understanding of science.
The enrichment camp is spearheaded by a renowned Australian science educator, Mr Sam Gibbs, who possesses over 14 years of experience in customising and conducting informal programs for students in Southeast Asia. Mr Gibbs has the knack of creating modules that connect everyday science with easy and simple learning and his programs have witnessed the participation of over 1,50,000 students.
