TWGHs Primary Students won awards in “Singapore Amazing Flying Machine Competition 2017”

In recent years, TWGHs primary schools have been actively promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education to enhance the scientific innovation, application and problem-solving abilities of students. To stimulate students’ interests in aviation technology and broaden their horizons, TWGHs primary schools have participated in the “Young Pilot Training Programme”, organised by The Lam Foundation and pilots of Federal Aviation Administration, since 2015. Aviation theories and practical knowledge of flight operation were taught by veteran pilots and aviation professionals. After training, outstanding students will be shortlisted and invited to participate in the “Singapore Amazing Flying Machine Competition (SAFMC)”.

In SAFMC 2017, TWGHs Tang Shiu Kin Primary School and TWGHs Chow Yin Sum Primary School won the 1st runner-up of Precision Award (International Student Class) and 2nd runner-up of the Time Aloft Award (International Student Class) respectively.
