Objectives and Content of Junior Science Institute (JSI)
Junior Science Institute (JSI) was introduced by the Faculty in 2009. It offers fun-filled science workshops and science-rich experiences to scientifically inclined senior secondary school students. We have designed a series of hands-on learning programmes for students to expose to different science disciplines. Through a variety of inspiring workshops, laboratory exercises, field trips, lectures and other interactive activities, participants are able to embark on a journey of science exploration.
In 2019-20, 32 JSI workshops in the areas of Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Environmental Science, Mathematics, Physics and Statistics will be offered. The inspiring workshops offer students with opportunities to broaden their horizons in various science disciplines.
Recognition of Participation
Students who have successfully completed the JSI workshops will be awarded a certificate of attendance*. Special consideration may also be given to JSI participants for admission to the 6901 Bachelor of Science programme.
JSI is also applicable to fulfill the Other Learning Experience (OLE) requirements^ in the Senior Secondary School curriculum.
*Certificates will not be awarded for online workshops.
^Online JSI workshops may not be eligible to fulfull OLE requirements.
