About JSI

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 workshops and hands-on learning programmes for students to expose to different science disciplines. Through a variety of inspiring workshops, laboratory exercises, lectures and other interactive activities, participants are able to embark on a journey of science exploration.

In coming academic year, JSI workshops in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Mathematics, Physics and Statistics will be offered. The workshops offer students opportunities to broaden their horizons in various science disciplines.

JSI is also applicable to fulfill the Other Learning Experience (OLE) requirements in the Senior Secondary School curriculum.
