Health Science and Technology @ CHR is a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Applied Learning Programme (STEM ALP). It provides learning opportunities for students to apply their knowledge and skills in Science, Mathematics and Technology to solve real-world problems.
It aims to develop 21st Century Competencies through an Inquiry Approach in Health Science and Technology. Through the programme, students will develop critical and inventive thinking dispositions and communication skills which will prepare them for the complexities and challenges faced in an era of innovation and uncertainty.
Health Science and Technology @ CHR takes the form of guided inquiry where students are equipped with the coding knowledge and skills of building electronic circuits using various inputs and outputs components and develop solutions and assistive devices to overcome obstacles faced by the elderly and people with disabilities.By fostering empathy, we aim to also inspire students to become active contributors and compassionate advocates.
As part of your child’s secondary school ALP journey, he/she will participate in the following activities:
Lower Secondary Curriculum:
||- Concepts on Computational Thinking and Electronics
- Group-based final project to apply their learning
||- Embark on a Design Thinking process where they design and create health care/assistive products for the end-user by delving deeper into their needs in collaboration with industry partners such as Woodlands Health Campus and Republic Polytechnic.
Beyond the classroom (for interested students):
Competitions: International Elementz Science Research Competition, Eat Your Farm competition, Singapore Youth Science Fair, STEM Playground, IgnITE Skills Challenge
CHOPE (School Health Advocates): Students acquire medical and healthcare knowledge through working opportunities with the medical professionals from Woodlands Health Campus and befriend seniors in the Woodlands community to help educate and promote healthy habits in their lives. The students also advocate for physical and mental health wellbeing amongst the student body through assembly talk shows and showcases in the school.
