Overview

The Science Department is led by our HOD Science and is supported by one SH. At BVSS, we aspire to produce students who are scientifically literate and inquisitive learners. We believe in nurturing our students to be self-directed learners who have a lifelong passion for Science. We adopt an Inquiry-Based Learning Approach in the teaching and learning of Science at all levels. Science knowledge and skills are nurtured and developed through these three broad platforms: Classroom Based, Laboratory Based and the Science Incubation Unit (SIU). Our SIU provides students with a holistic and integrated approach towards experiences in Applied Science Learning. The department adopts a holistic system in the teaching of Science for the lower secondary express and normal academic streams. For the Upper Secondary students, the department offers Pure Biology, Chemistry, Physics as well as Combined Science (Physics and Chemistry) and Combined Science (Biology and Chemistry) to all the Express Students. For the Upper Secondary Normal Academic students, the department offers Combined Science (Physics and Chemistry). As for our Normal Technical Stream, we offer Science at all levels. The department believes in giving equal opportunities for all students to learn Science so as to ensure that they have a well-rounded Science education. 

Vision

Scientifically literate and Inquisitive Learner.

Mission

To nurture scientifically literate and self-directed learners who have a lifelong passion for Science. 

Programmes

  1. Science Experiential Workshop (SEW) (Secondary 1)
  2. Ignite Challenge (for Secondary 2NT & 3NT)
  3. Advance Elective Module on STEM related areas (Secondary 3)
  4. Science & Technology Competition (NYP)

  1. Science Experiential Workshop (SEW) (Secondary 1)
Secondary One students attend the in-house Science Experiential Workshop (SEW) to enrich and extend their learning beyond the syllabus. Students will be engaged with hands-on activities when they attend the workshop. A few examples of these activities are bridge-building using ice-cream sticks, 'crime-scene' investigation and slime-making.

2. Ignite Challenge (for Secondary 2NT & 3NT)

The ignITE Skills Challenge is a national-level skills competition organised by the Institute of Technical Education, Singapore, with support from the Ministry of Education and Singapore Science Centre. As the only national competition for N Level students in Singapore, the aim is to excite secondary school students about the value of vocational and skills education.Students can participate in 12 challenges that focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

3. Advance Elective Module on STEM related areas (Secondary 3)

The Advanced Elective Module (AEM) is organised for the Secondary 3 Express Physics students. Students will be spending 4 days at Ngee Ann Polytechnic during their June or September school holidays to attend an advance elective module conducted by the Polytechnic. In attending this module, students have the chance to understand more about the STEM related skill as well as experience first hand how life in a Polytechnic is. This experience is highly recommended for all Secondary 3 students.

4. Science & Technology Competition (NYP)

The Science and Technology Challenge is an annual competition organised by Nanyang Polytechnic. The aim of the competition is to fuel students' critical and creative thinking while promoting the benefits of an engineering and science education. Students participates in several categories such as Balloon-Powered vehicle, Design & Build a bridge and many others.
