ABOUT

Vision

A passionate innovator who improve society through real-world applications of science and Islamic Studies.

 

Mission

To nurture creative, innovative and independent learners with a passion for life-long learning in Science, grounded in ethics and religion, with a curiosity of the universe and the persistence to uncover the unknown and connect scientific knowledge to their Islamic knowledge and Al Quran.

Mission Science Sec

OUR GOALS

The Science syllabus aims to emphasise the understanding and application of scientific concepts and principles. This will enable students to become confident citizens in a technological world, recognise the usefulness and limitations of the scientific method, and to appreciate its applicability in other disciplines, particularly the Holy Quran, the teachings of Islam and in everyday life.

OUR APPROACH
  • Provide a conducive learning environment which excites and engages them to excel.
  • Organise enrichment programmes/competitions/projects to provide students with opportunities to explore, collaborate and experience Science/Quran in real life applications.
  • Employ teaching strategies such as place-based learning and collaborative learning to enable students to be self-directed learners.
  • Engage teaching strategies such as integrated learning and collaborative learning to enable students to understand that academic and religious subjects are linked to one another and originally come from two sources which are the Holy Quran and Prophet’s Sunnah.

CURRICULUM

By the end of Secondary 4, an MWTian should be able to:

  1. acquire sufficient understanding and knowledge to become confident
  2. citizens in a technological world;
  3. develop an informed interest in matters of scientific importance;
  4. recognise the usefulness and limitations of scientific methods and models
  5. and to appreciate their applicability in everyday life;
  6. possess abilities and skills that
    •  are relevant to the study and practice of science,
    •  are useful in everyday life,
    •  encourage efficient and safe practice, and
    •  encourage effective communication;
    •  able to link religion and AL Quran to learning and practice of science

 

Science (Physics, Chemistry) and Science (Chemistry, Biology), 5076 & 5078
The curriculum for Science provides pupils with a broad-based training in the key areas of Physics and Chemistry or Chemistry and Biology. Pupils are exposed to approximately 60% of the Pure Chemistry and either 60% of the Pure Physics or 60% Pure Biology curriculum. This course prepares pupils well for future courses that require some exposure to the physical sciences beyond the O-Level.

LEARNING JOURNEY

The objectives of the learning journey to the Science Centre is to raise students’ awareness on how the three different component of perfumes are combined together to make various kinds of perfumes.

The practical laboratory session held at the Pauling Lab, Science Centre, on how to does a perfumer extract essential oil from flowers to make perfumes. The workshop help students to enhance their understanding which they have learnt in class on organic chemistry and on the different techniques of making scents, using distillation, esterification, filtration and perfume formulation.

Students are also given the opportunity to create your their own perfume using various essential oils and fragrance oils at the end of the lesson and was allowed to keep and bring back to school !

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ENRICHMENT CLASSES

Since January 2016, selected students from secondary two have been attending enrichment classes conducted by 2 volunteers. They are engineers from Ais Cube Pte Ltd who have been giving enrichment classes for our student for several years already. This year the classes are conducted every Saturday for two hours.

This year, classes include artificial intelligence in robotics, microcontroller based programming, sensor technology, and students are trained to build their own gadgets that can be controlled through programming.

These students, together with the trainer will collaborate and organise an inter-class robotics competition in early September 2016. This competition consists of two components: “Build your own gadget” and “programming”. The participants have to do programming to control their gadget and perform assign task for the competition. The facilitator and judges will be the robotics students who have been trained beforehand by our volunteers.
