STEM Applied Learning Programme (ALP)


The theme for the school's STEM ALP is 'Real World Explorations in ICT'. The STEM ALP aims to provide learning opportunities for students to acquire and apply their knowledge and critical thinking skills in solving problems through explorations in STEM and be prepared for 21CC and the workplace of the future. The two key programmes are: (1) Drones Programming for all Sec 2 students and (2) 3D Modelling and Printing Programme for all Sec 1 students. Both programmes aim to spark students' interest to consider careers in Aerospace Engineering, Transportation and Infrastructure, Entertainment and Media, Telecommunications, Health Sciences and Health Care, Architecture and others.


2018 Drones Programming

All Sec 2 EXP/NA/NT students learn basic block programming using a coding platform to get the drones to fly and overcome real life obstacles.

2018 Digital Maker's Programme

All Sec 1 EXP/NA and Sec 2EXP/NA students learn basic programming using a pocket-sized codable computer called the Micro:bit,  intended to be fun and easy to use to design digital watches and step trackers.


2018 3D Modelling and Printing Programme (NEW)

 In Semester 2, all Sec 1EXP/NA/NT students will learn the basics of 3D modelling using a 3D modelling software to develop design thinking skills and solve real-world problems.


Applied Learning Subjects

Selected Sec 3 express and Sec 3 normal technical students will have opportunities to pursue their interest and apply their knowledge and skills in MOE or MOE-ITE applied subjects, such as, Computing and Mobile Robotics.
In Computing, students develop and apply computational thinking skills to formulate computing solutions. The extension of learning in Computing is to allow students to participate in Advanced Elective Modules (AEMs) offered by polytechnics.
In Mobile Robotics, students apply technical knowledge and skills to design and build mobile robots to perform specific tasks.
