The Finalists and their Projects
Several months of efforts by students and staff involving brainstorming, planning and practicing their presentations resulted in three of our four secondary teams moving forward to the finals of the competition. There were a total of more than 350 teams. Amidst the tough competition, we are proud to share that we were the ONLY international school that had made it to finals.
Below are our three finalist teams, a description of their presentations and their team members.

The finals were held on 29 October 2022, and all 3 teams performed their presentations for the entire day from 10 am to 3 pm at the Singapore Science Centre.
After a long day, TWO of our teams received the Judges Awards: Team Water Saviours and team Shining Armour.
There were only 3 Judges awards in the secondary category and we clinched TWO!
Congratulations to all 3 teams for their hard work, creativity and for doing their best at every step of the way. From practicing in the lead up to the finals, to taking on feedback and finally, standing on their feet for 5 hours demonstrating their presentations and teaching curious visitors in the process. They gave it their all. We are very proud of all of them.
We would also like to commend all our students across all levels who participated in the competition but did not make it to the finals - their efforts allowed them to learn more, develop their public speaking skills and engage in Science in a creative and interdisciplinary way.
We also thank our teachers and staff for supporting the teams as well as making it possible for our students to experience the performance at the Singapore Science Centre.
