3.       The Programme Overview

 

The  1st International Science Youth Forum @ Singapore which draw attendance from top Science Student from premier school across Asia with feature Focus Dialogues with Nobel Laureates, Professors Douglas D. Osheroff (1996 Physics), Kurt Wϋthrich (2002 Chemistry) and Anthony James Legget (2003 Physics).

 

 

 

The overarching aim of International Science Youth Forum (ISYF) is to create a high-profile platform for elite Science students fromAsiato network with their counterparts and to build the capacities of their Science Educators. Co-operation and friendships will be established amongst young talented Science students. Students will have opportunities to interact and form strong bonds with each other. Activities are designed to promote mutual co-operation, understanding and appreciation of each other’s diverse cultures, as well as to provide opportunity for professional sharing and networking amongst scientist and fellow science educators overseas. The competence of teachers will be enhanced through exchanges of idea s and discussions. Furthermore, ISYF could also provide a platform for establishment and development of close ties among schools fromAsia, facilitating future collaborations and so-operation among these institutions of learning.

 

 

 

ISYF also aims to inspire passion for Science amongst youths. This event will provide high ability students will ample opportunities to be innovative and creative. The programme hopes to equip the students with a global mindset in their pursuit of scientific knowledge. Participants will also have opportunities to discuss their own research work with fellow students from different country and to take part in hands-on activities at Hwa Chong Institution’s Science Research Centre.  

 

 

 

The forum aims also to provide students with an avenue for intellectual dialogue and engagement with Nobel Laureates and other eminent scientist. This will create greater awareness amongst the youth about the importance of broad-based knowledge, diverse interests, deep passion, tenacity, and a global perspective in the pursuit of science excellence.

 

 

 

In the end, we hope that students and teachers alike will benefit from the interactions with Nobel Laureates and other eminent scientists, as well as their peers from other parts ofAsia. ISYF hopes to benefit not only students, but also the educators in Science.

After a long time of conference, the Hwa Chong’s teacher sent the 3 best participant, they were Ang Bao Joseph and friends from Hwa Chong Institution - Singapore, Tan Wei Han from Hwa Chong Institution - Singapore, and Heidi Patricia from SMA Negeri 4 Denpasar – Bali – Indonesia. It was a great honour for Indonesia, especially Bali, for being chosen to have a chance for presented Heidi’s project “Rolling Bridge as an Innovation Bridge with Rotate Application Concept and Crow-feet Construction” in front of the Nobel Laureates and the Ministry of Education of Singapore and also the other distinguished guests. Even the Prof. Kurt Wϋthrich (The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2002) appreciated on Heidi’s project very well. He said, “I think you know more than I do on the construction of bridges, that I have nothing to say but to congratulate you”.

 

After that tiring of Science research symposium, we got our little time for break, change our clothes, and ate some foods. At the evening, we prepared to go to the Night Safari, with our same group as our Amazing Race group.

 

The Night Safari was excellent. We got entertained by some night creatures, then go around Safari with the shuttle bus, and had a little walk along the track. It was really cool and exciting for all of us…!

We were separated into three big groups, each group will took a different speaker, there were Prof. Douglas Osheroff (Nobel Laureates), Prof. Kurt Wϋthrich (Nobel Laureates), and Local Scientists. Every day, each group will get different speaker and different topic. It was a nice and great session, we can discuss much kind of things with the Nobel laureates. After an exciting focus dialogue, we moved to our book circle group to discuss the book that they sent to us before we arrived at Singapore.

In this part of session, Prof. Kurt Wϋthrich opened the panel discussion with is presentation “My Life as a Scientist”. He discussed about the protein structures and his work with them using NMR. Later, during the panel discussion, Professor Wϋthrich and Professor Osheroff shared their views on research and their position as Nobel laureates. Professor Osheroff went n to express his opinion that solving a science problem was a battle between him and nature. It was awesome, heard a Nobel Laureates and its presentation, we do know a lot more of science. Then, at the evening, we got our free time in the sightseeing. We can go around Singapore as we want, do shopping, window shopping or just see the ethnic and important place at Singapore, some of us took the opportunity to catch a movie or tour Chinatown, Singapore’s oldest ethnic district, admist the buzz of the preparations for Chinese New Year.

At the morning, we had our breakfast and then took a short daily briefing from our facilitator about what to do on each day. After that, the third session of culture hour was held and followed by the second focus dialogue session. We discussed pressing ethical challenges a scientist or budding scientist would face in today’s world, such as how to deal with unsuccessful or anomalous result, whether scientists should be held responsible for the misuse of their inventions and whether science should be directed towards making tangible improvements to the lives of people or to be pursued for its own sake. Then after lunch, from afternoon until evening, it’s time for university visit. We separated into two big groups, one group go to NTU and one more go to NUS. It’s really nice to know campus life-style and what people learnt in university.
