Grand Prize Winners:

  • Coder and Team Leader, Lim Binjie James S303
  • Dealer, Sonny,  S208
  • Maker, Bek Jun Bervin S204
  • Designer, Hanis Safarin S203

WZJS is an intense 24hr innovation experience designed for entrepreneurs, designers, makers, scientists and coders to rapidly ideate and prototype a business idea. In the process, participants will learn to design their business models, develop solid value propositions and prototype solutions.

Although this competition was designed for students in the upper secondary and JC/CI/IP level, it did not appear to faze our teams comprising mainly of Secondary 2 students led by their Secondary Three seniors. This is also the first time that SST sent a combined Talent Development Programme (TDP) team for a competition with two representatives each from the ADMT, ICT, I&E and Science TDPs.
