National Education Gaming Championship 2013
The National Education Gaming Championship (NEGC) is an inter-school gaming competition organized by Nexus, Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) and supported by the Ministry of Education to engage youths for the purpose of National Education (NE).
The NEGC is a fun and engaging way for youths to discover what the 3rd Generation SAF is about. It also allows youths, especially the boys, to learn about defence and National Service before enlistment. Virtual Battlespace 2 (VBS2) is the official game used in NEGC. It is a PC-based virtual simulation training software used to train soldiers in the SAF.
Since March, each participating team had committed their time to 2 training sessions and 1 preliminary session before being shortlisted for the finals. Our school sent in 3 teams for the first time this year to compete with 114 other teams from secondary schools/JCs/ITEs/Polytechnics all over Singapore.
