AGES 10 - 12
Technology in a changing world Part 1 and 2
Technology is changing the way that engineers think.   The future of successful economics depends on those who are able to design and build innovative technology. This course focuses on the engineering design process and learning habits of the mind.   During this strand, you will work together to develop core robotics skills using innovative construction and automation kits
Young Scientists Part 1 and 2
Throughout these weeks you will experience a taster of a wide range of STEM Subjects. We will be focussing on maths, physics and engineering to discover how strong everyday household items can be. We will explore the brilliant biological world ranging from the microscopic realm to whole organisms which are specially adapted to their environment. Finally, get ready to marvel at the weird and wonderful world of chemistry - we won't forget our safety specs for some hands-on activities
Plastics in the environment (Part 1 and 2)
Plastics have been a feature of modern life for over 100 years. However, much of the plastic materials manufactured remain in the environment. But, where is it now? What can we do to reduce, remove or recycle plastics from our everyday lives and reduce the environmental impact of this 'wonder' material?
AGES 13 - 15
Computer Science Part 1
This program will start by introducing you to the general field of artificial intelligence, and will then focus on specific state-of-the-art techniques. More specifically, you will learn about deep learning, what neural networks are, how you can design, implement and customize them, and ultimately how you can train them to behave in specific ways. In order to better understand their limits of performance, the program will also touch on several general machine learning ideas. At the end of the program, you should have sufficient knowledge and skills, to build your own deep learning solutions, given any new set of problems.
Hunt for Micro Plastics              (Part 1 and 2)
Plastics have been around us for over 100 years in a variety of forms. However, what is becoming clear is that although large plastic waste may degarade, it becomes smaller and smaller fragments of the same plastic material. These small fragments eventually become micro plastics visible only under a microscope and illuminated to be able to be seen. But where do these micro plastic particles end up in the environment? We will hunt for them on beaches and also in the water column of the sea. Micro plastics are also manufactured for products we use, such as toothpaste - but the same question remains about the final destination of these materials. Join the hunt!
Engineering for Energy Efficiency (Part 1 and 2)
Civil Engineers design, construct and maintain many essential public and private infrastructures and systems such as roads, railways, buildings and even water and sewage systems. The work of a physicist ranges from university applications to applications beyond our planet! During this strand you will explore the innovative work of Engineers and Physicists through both classrom and practial hands-on activities
Biotechnology (Part 1 and 2)
Biotechnology processes produce new materials using biological catalysts. The biodiversity of the ASEAN countries potentially provides a treasure chest of new opportunity for generating new products and processes to benefit society. This strand will explore the science, technology, engineering and potential human benefit of this imortant technology.
AGES 16 - 17
Environmental Science               (Part 1 and 2)
This program will help you understand and appreciate human impacts on the planet, and the steps we can all take to limit these impacts. It will cover topics such as pollution, climate change, and biodiversity loss, and take a look at some of the new and exciting approaches to sustainable environmental management that are being developed to combat human impacts. It will be activity based, and you will do things such as running computer simulations of your own carbon footprint, and look at animals ranging in size from tiny insects to elephants.
This programme will introduce you to how innovations in biosciences has been central to the production and protection of food resources and designing new technologies to improve human health. The programme will cover topics such as climate-smart plants, postharvest technology, molecular pharming, genetics, microbiology, nutrition and public health. Some of the activities include plant growth monitoring for drought and salinity tolerant plants, edible coatings that protect fruits and vegetables, production of animal vaccines using plant as bio-factories, microbiology techniques for food contaminants, anthropometric analyses for well-being and sustainable ingredients for future foods.
Discovering Natural Products   (Part 1 and 2)
Many research institutes in ASEAN countries are exploring the biodiversity of the regions to find new starting points for products ranging from cosmetics to medicines. This strand will explore some of the processes involved investigating natural products and exploring their commercial product potential. This involves the use of ideas from across the STEM spectrum but starting with Chemistry.
