Capture your own ECG!
A hands-on activity to know your heart better, participants get to capture their own electrocardiograph (ECG) and experience measurement of their blood pressure, blood oxygen level, body fat percentage and hearing level. The programme maybe replaced by other hands-on activity e.g. Electromyography.
Developing Android Application
Participants form a 2-person group to learn how to display Google Maps in an Android Application and access the target location using a simulated receiver.
Participants get to learn how to do soldering and later build an electronic kitset to flash LEDs. They will learn how to apply some concepts learnt in daily life applications.
Flight Simulator Programme
Students get to learn about basic flight theory and basic instruments used in an airplane cockpit. They will learn to fly a Cessna 172 aircraft using the Microsoft Flight Simulator with guided lessons on takeoffs, landings and receive a Flight Simulator Solo Certificate at the end of their solo flight.
Laboratory/Technology Centre Tours
School groups are welcome to tour NP’s Aerospace Electronics Lab, Biomedical Engineering Centre, Digital Processing Centre, Network Systems & Security Lab and Microelectronics Lab.
Approximately 20-30 minutes per centre/lab.
Magic of Science (1Hr)
An action-packed show which uses magic tricks to highlight amazing scientific facts and engineering applications.
Security & Hacking
