A Re-Introduction to Science (4 workshops)

Our flagship program tackles the biggest myth in science - "this stuff will never be useful!" We paint science in a new light to show students its relevance in the information age we live in. We’re here to prove that science doesn’t end at that Friday afternoon period they desperately want over – science is a lifestyle


This program consists of 3-4 workshops delivered at schools by our trained facilitators. Each workshop centres on a specific theme to examine creativity, critical thinking, and communication in science. Our workshops are supplemented by online resources and mentoring to support students to develop and apply these skills without pressure.

A Foray into Neuroscience (1 workshop)

Neuroscience is an oft-forgotten discipline in high school science curricula, and our one-off 90-minute workshop provides a gentle introduction that leverages the potential of neuroscience in higher-order thinking and multidisciplinary learning within STEMM. 

 

Students engage with fundamental ideas in neuroscience through a series of hands-on activities that incorporate technologies such as electroencephalography and artificial intelligence. In the second half, they are challenged to apply this knowledge to tackle a real-world problem, contextualising the role of science in society. A focus on ethics engrained throughout the workshop urges students to simultaneously reflect on the consequences of scientific progress.
 

"It was highly interesting and a fun example of what science can accomplish. I wish it went on for longer!"
