Every JYian a Self-directed learner with an inquiring mind.
To cultivate lifelong learners with an awareness and interest in the application of Science in their daily lives.
The Science Department strives to inculcate the joy of learning in our students by providing them with varied experiences to stimulate their curiosity and discover their interests. Through our specially selected programmes, our students have also acquired new knowledge and skills relevant to the real world.

This year, our Secondary 1 students visited the exhibition Future World at Art Science Museum, and were immersed in art and science through digital and interactive installations.
Secondary 2 students embarked on a learning journey to Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve with key inquiry questions in mind. They interacted with experienced guides to understand its biodiversity and captured sights and sounds which they shared through class presentations. Over the June break, Secondary 2 Express students explored various topics of their interests and worked on DIY Science projects, where they created videos to explain science concepts behind their experiments.
At Secondary 3 level, a group of students pursued their interest in crystal-growing and worked tirelessly over several months, and presented their work at the NUS Crystal Growing Challenge 2018. Through hard work, another team of students put their chromatography skills to the test and emerged as Champions in ignITE Skills Challenge 2018 – Colourful Hands, Colourful Minds. In addition, our students were also engaged in a visit to Jurong Island Power Station and the Changi Intertidal Walk.
In the pursuit of excellence, selected Sec 4 students also participated in the Singapore Junior Chemistry Olympiad.
