Junior Science Clubs

The Junior Science Clubs initiative forms part of the STEM popularisation process targeting primary students conducted by the Department of Curriculum Management. The aim is to organize a number of Clubs (on a pilot project) within different localities as an alternative extra-curricular activity, after school hours. This initiative provides parents the opportunity to choose to enrol their daughters/sons in these clubs to experience science investigations and practical science-related activities that extend their science experiences in the classroom setting.

This initiative provides pupils, practice of science-related process skills and increased opportunity to develop and practice critical thinking, communication skills, and self-appraisal. The science clubs provide opportunities to explore a wider range of STEM themes, thus broadening the pupils’ enthusiasm and interest for science from an early age.

Such science clubs also offer the school the opportunity to strengthen the science teaching and learning, thus raising the profile of science within the school, contributing to a positive attitude change towards science lessons.
