Key programmes of Department

Science Enrichment Program @ Anderson
Anderson Science Department continues to groom students into thinkers and innovators by immersing its lower secondary pupils in a series of engaging science activities outside their curriculum time. These include exposure to different water technologies and alternative energies.

Science Research Programme @ Anderson
Anderson Science Department also promotes inquiry-based learning by immersing our Secondary 2 pupils into science research. The Science Research Programme weaves the learning of science research skills into the science curriculum and provides hands-on learning opportunities for pupils in the form of self-designed science projects.

Awards and Achievements of Department

Science Competitions

17th Elementz Science Research Conference and Exhibition
Held annually at Anderson Junior College, our pupils did the school proud by winning the Silver award for their study on making plastics with corn starch led by our science teacher Mdm Lum Yoke Wah.

Youth Science Conference
In the culmination of the Science Mentorship Program from December 2015 to September 2016, two teams under the guidance of Mdm Tey Chin Chin and Mr Arthur Lim completed their scientific paper for publication. They presented it during the 22nd Youth Science Conference at NUS. The pupils were awarded a Distinction award for their research on materials to build an underwater drone and a Merit award for their research on nanoparticles for lithium batteries.

National Science Challenge
Our students, led by Mr Mehervan Singh, have done us proud to be amongst the top 16 teams in Singapore as quarter finalists of the National Science Challenge organised by the Singapore Science Centre

Ignite Skills Challenge 2016
The Ignite Skills Challenge is a national competition organized by ITE for N level students to put their creativity and science skills to the test. Our students, led by Mr Andrew Lee, did the school proud by winning the most innovative design award for the bullet vessel competition and the 1st runner up for the flower power competition. 

Each year our school participates in the International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS) Science Assessment under University of New South Wales. The competition involves the assessment of students' skills in key scientific areas of interpreting data, application of the data and higher order thinking skills. In 2016, four students achieved the High Distinction Award.
