NUS High School Sweeps Awards at the Singapore Science and Engineering Fair 2015

The Singapore Science and Engineering Fair (SSEF) is a national competition organised by the Ministry of Education (MOE), the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and the Science Centre Singapore (SCS). It is intended for students who have conducted research over the past year to showcase their findings. Outstanding entries will represent Singapore in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) to be held from in 10 to 15 May 2015, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.

Our results:

9 Gold Awards (out of 20 nation-wide)

9 Silver Awards (out of 25 nation-wide)

4 Bronze Awards (out of 33 nation-wide)

6 Merit Awards (out of 36 nation-wide)

A total of 3 students (out of 9 nation-wide) selected to represent Singapore in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Pittsburg in May 2015:
