Apart from the research work done at ERI@N, we also want to cultivate and nurture the budding interest and aptitude in students.
Since 2013, ERI@N has been actively involved in the Unity Scientific Innovation Challenge - a collaboration with Singapore Polytechnic and Unity Secondary School (Singapore) for the yearly USPE Programme that encourages and ignite Secondary school students' curiosity and creativity in applying scientific principles to develop smart solutions for a better future.
Topics and hands ‘on activities covered included solar cells, battery materials, fuel cells, autonomous vehicles, wind turbines, and virtual reality platforms to visualise simulation and modelling results. Such collaborations help Secondary schools building the science and technology curriculum beyond the classrooms and provide a set-up where students could gain more from the experiential learning. Since 2013, ERI@N has hosted more than 300 secondary students from over 20 schools.
