Our mission at SST is to nurture passionate innovators who improve society through real world application of science and technology. The ChangeMakers Programme is the signature bedrock curriculum that aims to provide students with an integrated learning experience towards developing the attitudes and attributes of an innovator with an entrepreneurial mind. The programme will integrate principles, knowledge and skills from Art, Design, Media and Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Information and Communication Technology, Mathematics and Science.
Art, Design, Media and Technology
ADMT equips students with the fundamentals of Graphic & Information Design, Product & Industrial Design, as well as Interactive Digital Media & Video Production. Post instruction, students will be guided by the Challenge-Based Learning (CBL) protocols in identifying real-world issues and designing solutions to these problems, which include those in the area of energy conservation. Some ideas and solutions have been showcased in prototypes and animated clips that incorporate stop-motion photography.
Innovation and Entrepreneurship
The I & E programme adopts a targeted early approach to instil in students a sense of curiosity, a passion for creativity, an innovative spirit, an entrepreneurial mindset, and a willingness to challenge conventional wisdom. Students will be inspired by the stories shared by real-life entrepreneurs and Singapore icons for their work in contributing to the local economy. Social and business enterprise projects are just some of the many exciting learning experiences that are in store for our students.
Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
“Technology as a way of life” is a dictum at SST as we believe that the 1:1 ICT-enabled learning environment elevates student engagement in learning and stretches each student’s potential. The use of stimulation tools, cutting-edge geometrical software and applets, as well as online platforms and tools, all contribute to the creation of a dynamic and interactive classroom. Beyond software application and computational thinking, SST provides the differentiated opportunities for students to develop the skills and attributes of designers, makers and programmers.
As a forerunner in transforming learning, the school believes in helping to build an empowered community. While SST students take the lead in running several nationwide ICT initiatives which includes SST Make-A-Thon and the Cyber Wellness Student Ambassador Programme (CWSAP) initiatives, SST teachers help other educators adopt innovative teaching practices through platforms such as SST Tech Summit and Lab School @ SST.
