SIE 2017_landscape visual

If you are thinking of furthering your studies in Europe, there is an upcoming education fair organised by the EU Delegation to Singapore – Study In Europe 2017

Nations from across Europe will be represented at the annual Study In Europe education fair. In its 11th year, Study In Europe presents the many diverse study programmes on offer throughout Europe and highlights a range of scholarship options that could make studying in Europe easier for students. Study in Europe 2017 will be held in Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre.

The popular annual education fair seeks to connect students in Singapore with universities in Europe and provide them access to information about institutions they might be interested in studying at, the application process together with details of various bond-free scholarships.

Organised by the European Union (EU) Delegation to Singapore, this fair brings together 13 European countries. The countries represented at the fair are Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom. 

Targeted at students as well as researchers and academics in Singapore, Study In Europe aims to provide them access to opportunities in Europe that they might not be aware of.

The fair highlights the many programmes offered across universities in Europe while at the same time dispelling many of the assumptions and concerns that international students may have about studying in Europe. This includes providing information about the many universities in continental Europe, where courses are conducted in English. 

2017 also marks 30 years of the European Union’s European Erasmus programme, a student exchange programme offering university students the possibility of studying or doing an internship in another country. Now known as Erasmus+, the programme extends its funding to include support for education and training staff, youth workers, partnerships between universities, colleges, schools, enterprises, and not-for-profit organisations. Visitors will be able to find out more about the Erasmus+ programme at the fair.

About Kids DiscoveryWorks, it has a range of programs to prepare children from preschool to primary school for a world where success will require more flexibility, creativity, innovation, and social intelligence than ever before. It helps to build these essential skills which are important for a child’s development and to truly engage children at this stage in their learning, education must encourage a child’s natural curiosity and enthusiasm, and be enriched by exploration, discovery, problem-solving and creative thinking. Kids DiscoveryWorks enables children to devote hands-on activities, or to allow children to experience the pleasure of designing experiments to solve real-world, relevant problems.

Read on to find out more about Kids DiscoveryWorks SuperHero Science Holiday Camp.

SuperHero Science Kids DiscoveryWorks

SuperHero Science at Kids DiscoveryWorks is a 3 days holiday camp starting from 9am to 3.30pm. Lunch, healthy snacks and all materials will be provided for full-day campers.

What is the SuperHero Science Holiday Camp about? 

Loki is leading an army of Frost Giants to invade Earth! 

Kids being the best and brightest S.H.I.E.L.D Agents have been chosen to help the Avengers in battle. They will join Avengers to help them complete their missions which include clear blocked passageways, defect enemy drones, distract and destroy Frost Giants. Kids be part of the mission to save the Earth! 

S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents will learn and gain exposure to both scientific method and the engineering design process, learn fundamental principles and concepts used in the natural sciences and civil, mechanical and chemical engineering. 

Looking at the camp synopsis, Little KW being a Avenger’s fan is so excited to know at the SuperHero Science holiday camp, he can be a S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent and embark on an important mission! 

Kids DiscoveryWorks Holiday Camp

Day 1 of SuperHero Science 

It is the first day of SuperHero Science camp! Little KW is happy to get to know new friends and he quickly settled down to learn more about his mission. 

Kids DiscoveryWorks 2

I am a S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent on a mission together with the Avengers to save the Earth!

To prepare ourselves for this important mission, we learn about gravity, projectile trajectory, potential and kinetic energy!

Kids DiscoveryWorks 3

SuperHero Science – Arrows Away! (Potential and Kinetic Energy)

As Agents, we must know how to make our own weapons and undergo weapons training where we will conduct experiments with our newly made bows and arrows to determine the optimal angle of launch to achieve the furthest range of 45 degrees!

Kids DiscoveryWorks Holiday Camp 2

SuperHero Science – Reaction Distractions (Chemical Reactions)

In the afternoon, we wasted no time to further engage in hands-on experiment to learn all about chemical reactions! We learned about atoms, molecules, and chemical and physical changes. The ability to recognise common signs of chemical reactions when embarking on our own series of experiments and make our own bottle rockets! Looking at how our bottle rocket shots up, we have succeeded! 

To save the Earth, we must be fully prepared! 

Day 2 of SuperHero Science

Kids DiscoveryWorks 6

SuperHero Science – Bridging the Gap (Bridge Engineering) 

We have reached Day 2 of our training and my fellow agents and I are looking forward to apply what we have learnt into engineering tasks!

Bridges are an important mean of transportation. There are four main types of bridges: Beam, Truss, Arch and Suspension Bridges, we learnt all about them and the forces that act on them. 

Kids DiscoveryWorks SuperHero Science Holiday Camp

Today, we spend a fruitful time learning from our S.H.I.E.L.D. instructor. It’s an eye-opener and mind-blowing to learn and discover amazing work from famous architect like Shigeru Ban. As Agents, we are challenged to exercise our knowledge and engineered into making our own weight-bearing bridges made out of straws! The bridge that can support the most weight will win! 

Kids DiscoveryWorks 8

SuperHero Science – Balloon Power (Newton’s Third Law)

We get to conduct experiments with pinwheel and balloon rockets, design and make our very own balloon-powered cars. In the process, we learnt more about Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion. 

Kids DiscoveryWorks 7Agents gather to discuss and work together to complete their tasks.

Day 3 of SuperHero Science

This day marked the last day to complete our mission! We have much to learn and to finish our work to save the Earth! We learnt all about friction and get to conduct a series of experiments to find out and explore how friction acts to slow things down, we Agents get hands-on to build our own balloon hovercrafts! 

Kids DiscoveryWorks 2017

SuperHero Science – Discovering Hovering (Friction)

Fidget spinners is very popular right now!

At the camp, we get to make DIY fidget spinners which rely on reduced friction. It can be pretty stressful fighting Loki and his army of Frost Giants, we need to destress and by making our own DIY fidget spinner, we can use that for some stress relief! 

Kids DiscoveryWorks 11

I am working on an experiment with my fellow Agents! 

SuperHero Science – (Non-Newtonian Fluids) 

We learnt about ‘normal’ liquids, like water are called Newtonian fluids after Isaac Newton, it has a constant viscosity and is affected by temperature. Non-Newtonian fluids is affected by force or sheer stresses like stirring.
