Supporting the Fruit of the Future
STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) @ MGS challenges students to tackle and solve complex questions, investigate global issues, and develop solutions to real-world problems.
Every student in her lower secondary years gets the opportunity to participate in hands-on teacher-initiated STEAM integrated learning experiences both as part of our school’s formal science curriculum and as part of the enrichment programme in collaboration with external science organisations such as Science Centre Singapore. These may include exploring the use of Smart Materials that revolutionised devices in the field of Material Science or studying how genetic engineering can be used to produce insulin or human growth hormones.
In addition, the MGS Maker Movement and other pioneering initiatives by the school enable the creative and collaborative learner to hone real world skills relevant for the future world and flourish holistically. The iMaGineSpace gallery and art rooms serve as a hub to cultivate in MGS students the aptitude for design, innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship.
Our teacher-initiated STEAM integrated learning experiences have enabled our students to appreciate how STEAM pervades every part of our lives.
In STEAM@MGS, our students have had the opportunity to integrate discovery and innovation into their enriched learning experiences, through collaboration with our strategic partners such as DSTA, Science Centre Singapore and UN Women Singapore, and local entrepreneurs Scent by SIX and Je T’aime Perfumery.
MGS students are encouraged to express their values and practices through platforms such as the Science Olympiads, Science Mentorship Programmes (SMP) and the International Youth Science Forum (IYSF). In addition, our students also participate in the Engineering@Youth Defence Science Programme (YDSP) which provides them opportunities to experience research work in DSTA, DSO and their research institutes.
Our valued partners provide our students with real world experiences and a bridge between academic experiences and career applications.
