Excellence 2000 (E2K)
E2K is a collaborative programme between WSPS and the Gifted Education Branch (GEB). It complements the department’s aim to promote inquiry learning by:
Through the programme, Science ideas and concepts are introduced to the students through the inductive approach and students get to work on research topics and protocols, replicating the creation process of scientists.
Science is FUN
Science is Fun is a Semestral assembly programme conducted by the
Science Department. Through an array of Science-related activities planned by
the teachers, students get to discover the application of Science in our everyday
lives. When students’ interests in Science are piqued, they are motivated to
find out more about the concepts introduced on their own.
