Applied Subjects @SST

10:24 AM Posted by Genevieve No comments
Applied Studies @SST are divided into 3 sections. In the chemistry lab, there is the Fundamentals of Electronics. In the biology lab, we have Biotechnology and Environment Science and Technology. And finally, in the Design and Media Studio 1 is Media Studies and Design Studies.

In the chemistry lab, more and more students are flooding in with their parents right behind them. They all got seated on the chairs and are waiting for the presentation to start. Some parents are enquiring more about The Fundamentals of Electronics and the representatives from Ngee Ann Polytechnic are doing their best to answer all questions. After most of the seats were filled, the presentation starts.

 As the speaker, Mr Ong, shows the parents and student how to use the circuit application, students and parents listen attentively to him and does as he instructs. The other Ngee Ann Polytechnic representatives are helping the students and parents whenever they need help or assistance. It is mostly the students interacting with the computer and the application. Besides the application on the computer, they also have a little circuit board and the parts for the students to experiment with. Parents are helping their child with the circuit board. While the students are experimenting with the circuit board, the Helper Representatives are looking around and giving assistance to those who have problems.

Another session of presentation and hands-on activity begins again as a lot of parents and students fill the room up. The chemistry lab seems to be the most popular as the flow of students and parents coming in never end and they always come in in 1 big group. Fundamental of Electronics seem to be very popular among students.

In the biology lab, there are not as much students and parents in the biology lab than in the chemistry lab. However, there are still parents and students flooding into the biology lab. As the parents and students are seated, they look around the lab and take a look at the machines and apparatus used in the biology lab.

More and more parents slowly fill the biology lab as time advances. Students are interacting with the apparatus set up, and so are the parents. The Ngee Ann Polytechnic representatives in the biology lab are explaining the different set-ups to the parents and the students. As more and more parents fill the room with their child in front of them, the Ngee Ann Representatives start demonstrations and explanations. Then the parents and students are left to explore the biology lab by themselves.

More students and parents crowd round the two main tables. One has an explanation going on, the other is for the students and their parents to explore.Like the Design and Media Studio 1, the flow of people never end.

In the Design and Media Studio 1, more students flood in with their parents and interacting with the Media Representatives, also from Ngee Ann Polytechnic. The Media Representatives are showing parents what they do and answering their questions.

Parents and students were interested in the work they have done. Some of the parents and students are watching the little movie the Media Team made to show Media Studies to the parents and students. And the others are listening to the Media Representatives' description and explanation of Media Studies and Design Studies.

More and more parents fill the room up and questions and answers are being said. Some students are scrolling through the work that the Media Team had done in other schools. The flow of people coming in never seems to end.
