2. STEM Trip 2019 – 1-5 July 2019

18 S5 students travelled to Japan from 1st to 5th July. The 5-day-trip enabled them to appreciate cutting-edge technology by visiting major technology development centres – the Panasonic Centre, the Nissan Car Factory, the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation and the Mitsubishi Minatomirai Museum. They also had the opportunity to enrich themselves by learning science knowledge outside school curriculum coverage through visits to museums.
