NUS High School Clinches Top Institution Award and First Prize at A*Star Talent Search 2015
The A*STAR Talent Search (ATS), sponsored by the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and organised with the support of the Science Centre Singapore (SCS), recognises students who have excelled in scientific research.
The ATS is an annual competition which acknowledges and rewards students aged 15 to 21 years old who have a strong aptitude for science & technology. This competition provides students the opportunity to showcase their stellar projects and encourage them to further explore science and technology.
Candidates are required to showcase their research projects in the Singapore Science & Engineering Fair (SSEF) for the first round of judging. Shortlisted candidates will then undergo at least two more rounds of selection before the winners emerge. The panel of judges consists of distinguished scientists from local and international universities, as well as A*STAR research institutes. ATS winners need to display resourcefulness, mastery of scientific concepts, as well as passion for scientific research. Professor Bertil Andersson, President of the Nanyang Technological University, is the chair of the selection committee in 2015.
The event took place on 22 April 2015.
