NUS High School Does Well in the Genetic Modification Advisory Committee (GMAC) Students Challenge 2015

Genetic Modification Advisory Committee (GMAC) is a multi-agency national committee that oversees and advises on the research and development, production use handling and release of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in Singapore.

The GMAC Students Challenge 2015 – an inter-school infograph poster competition – is organized as part of GMAC’s ongoing efforts in educating the public on GM-related issues. Through this competition, GMAC aims to promote active learning and to stimulate students’ interest in the science behind GM technology and GMOs.

This year, the participants are tasked to create infographic based on the theme of “Spy on the GM”. Out of 36 entries, 10 finalists were then invited to do a presentation on their infograph for final judging.
