RGS HUSH-STEM Week 2019


RGS HUSH-STEM Week was held from 27 February to 7 March this year and the organising team, made up of staff and students from the RGS Aesthetics Department, Humanities Department, Mathematics Department, Science Department, Cogitare, Debate & Oratorical Society, House, Robotics Club, Infocomm Club, and our career guidance counsellors and librarians have worked hard to put together a series of activities! Some highlights of the week include:

  • Introductory SWIFT Workshop: A course to get started in mobile app development
  • Human Library: ‘Books’ made up of external speakers and RGS staff, who shared their valuable insights on issues in Humanities and STEM
  • Socratic Seminar: Students from Kuo Chuan Presbyterian, Singapore Chinese Girls’ School, Whitley Secondary School, St. Joseph’s Institution and Raffles Institution, together with RGS students engaged in an afternoon of enriching and intellectually stimulating discussion on Artificial Intelligence
  • Debates: A debate on a HUSH-STEM issue by various representatives from each House

RGS HUSH-STEM Week is a week dedicated to allow students to learn more about the issues that humanity is engaging with today and how the interdisciplinary problem-solving STEM approach can help to address many of those issues.
