Science Mentorship Programme was formed in 1992. It has since expanded to 13 programmes of various experts in different scientific fields. It aims to cultivate in pupils the spirit of inquiry as well as to develop attitudes and values for the proper conduct of science. To accomplish this, the pupils are provided with the opportunity to initiate scientific investigations under the guidance and mentorship of their science teachers. This will help prepare and equip them better for a mentorship experience with a professional scientist when they are ready.
1. To promote scientific study through investigative science fair projects
