Objectives

The Science Explorers Short-Term Programmes (STP) are conducted in every school term this year with a focus on different Science themes in line with MOE syllabus.  

Structure

These Science Programmes are designed to provide support for our primary school students with the Science Literacy, Understanding of the Science Processes, Specialized Science Vocabulary Knowledge and Application of the Conceptual Understanding and Skills to answer Science Exam Questions in a Fun and Interactive Environment.

What are the challenges that students face when learning Science in their schools?

Our students with dyslexia face several key challenges when learning Science such as having a lack of prior knowledge on the Science topics, struggling to read and comprehend the Science expository text, unable to spell the specialised Science vocabulary correctly and having issues when sequencing Science processes in respective order. As a result, our students struggle to do well for their Science examination and this can affect their self-confidence as well. Thus, when our students enrol in our Science Explorers Short-Term Programmes, the effectiveness of the Inquiry-Based Learning approach in our Science lessons will pave the pathway for stimulating students’ thinking and engaging them with authentic Science investigations. Furthermore, it also helps to foster Science vocabulary knowledge and conceptual understanding. As such, our students will become their own builders of knowledge and skills that they need to function in today’s world.  

What will students learn in the Science STP?

In line with MOE syllabus, Science themes such as Diversity, Interactions, Systems, Energy and Cycles are included in the respective Science STPs for each school-term.  Through the Inquiry-Based Learning (IBL) Approach, students will learn to Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend and Evaluate on Science concepts as an Experiential Learning in their Daily Lives, Society and the Environment.
