STEM Inc is the abbreviation for Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM); innovation and creativity, or Incorporation (Inc). Established in January 2014, it is a unit in Science Centre Singapore dedicated to igniting students’ passion for STEM.
Our initiatives are strongly supported by the Ministry of Education, Singapore as STEM Inc supports the STEM Applied Learning Programme (ALP) in secondary schools. To further enrich students’ learning experiences, our Industrial Partnership Programme (IPP) creates opportunities for students to get early exposure to the real-world STEM industries and careers.
We are in a mission to nurture our future Scientists, Technologists, Engineers and Mathematicians for there is a global shortage of quality workforce in the STEM industries.
Former Minister for Ministry of Education, Mr Heng Swee Keat visited Greendale Secondary School at the launch of STEM Applied Learning Programme in September 2014.
