About Us

In Science Department, the staff creates a learning environment that focuses on conceptual learning and engages students in meaningful activities that enable them to apply and communicate their knowledge. Technology is used as a tool to help all students actively learn science in an inquiry-based curriculum. The inquiry-based process uses varied instructional strategies and scientific technologies to enable students to develop as self-directed learners.

Programmes

  1. Scientific Thinking Programme
  • Selected 2E students.
  • Objective: To develop the curiosity of students towards the science of everyday life and the scientific thinking skills required to solve questions of phenomenon happening everyday.

  1. Advanced Electives Modules (AEM)
  • Selected 3E / 4NA
  • Objective: To provide students with greater exposure to practice-oriented learning approaches and help them discover their strengths and interests.

  1. Science Carnival
  • From building the tallest tower using spaghetti, to finding out how different colours of light can affect photosynthesis, these are some of the activities students can look forward to at the annual Science Carnival. Students get to try out different activities from each science discipline, Physics, Chemistry and Biology, to build up their interest in the learning of Science.

  1. Visit to Science Centre
  • Objective: It is a systematic way of pursuing a curiosity to its logical end, or, of engaging one’s senses (observations) on an intrigue or an enigma and using pre-knowledge, ingenuity and creativity to understand and resolve it – all in a carefully thought-out, methodical analytical-logical manner.
  • Scientist for a Day workshop / Sec 1E/1N

  1. Visit to Science Centre (Physics)
  • Objective: To make students think about friction and how to make structures stable by using diff erent materials. Also, comparison with real-life structures will be highlighted, in particular those able to withstand extreme forces such as earthquakes
  • Shake Rattle and Roll / Sec 3E/3N

  1. Visit to Science Centre (Biology)
  • The objective is to give our students a deeper understanding of life sciences topics and issues, and at the same time stimulate students' interest in taking up careers in the life sciences. This would educate students to be more scientifically literate and later, as adults, they would have more considered views about life sciences issues and concerns.
    Programmes offered:
    • Finding the Lost Princess - A Forensic Approach
    • Bacteria Transformation
    • Genetic Diseases

Competition and Achievement

Elementz Science Conference and Exhibition 2022


Ever wonder what is the best way to score points in a game of beer pong? Or the best way to save the environment from water pollution? Or how to reduce household food waste by converting them into fertilisers?

Three groups of budding scientists from Secondary Two carried out these investigations and presented their findings at the Elementz Science Conference and Exhibition 2022.

Under the mentorship of Mr Tan Hong Chan, Ms Emily Tow, Mdm Latifah and Mr Mohamed Imran, the students did the school proud by clinching Gold, Bronze and Certificate of Commendation at the conference.

Elementz Science Conference and Exhibition 2019



With a casual toss, the 10X10 quadrat landed on a grass patch near the AI Indoor Sports Hall and a photograph was taken. The plants found in the quadrat’s grids were painstakingly counted and compared against a plant database to determine their identities. Meanwhile, a second group of students was busy in the science laboratory, experimenting with activated carbon to find out the most effective way to filter contaminated water. Amidst all the activities, another group got their hands dirty by trying out different mixtures of household compost to germinate seeds.

Opportunities to engage in authentic scientific inquiry are embedded within our AI Science curriculum. These platforms are designed to enable our students to stretch their thinking, apply their knowledge and develop their passion in Science.

Under the mentorship of Mr Tan Hong Chan and Ms Emily Tow, three groups of budding scientists from Secondary One carried out various environmental science projects and presented them at the Elementz Science Conference and exhibition 2019.

C. B. Paul Science Quiz 2022


An annual competition organised by the Anglo-Chinese Junior College in collaboration with the Nanyang Technological University and the National University of Singapore. The competition challenges our students in the areas of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Computer Science, going beyond the school syllabus. Four of our students participated in the International C. B. Paul Science Quiz 2022.

The students are self-directed and independent learners who went beyond the school syllabus to prepare for the quiz. Their hard work and determination paid off, with the team receiving the following awards:
