In February, five students from Camborne Science and International Academy took part in a fantastic academic exchange to National Junior College Singapore. The students worked on projects with NJC students that they had all begun work on in the UK in November. One group worked on the biodiversity of the Singapore butterfly population and how the grounds of NJC can be used to support biodiversity. The other group used a TimPix Radiation detector to look at the background radiation in the UK and Singapore. They used the detector to map the background radiation across NJC.
The students and staff also took part in a wonderful array of cultural experiences, including, on their last night in Singapore, visiting the ‘SuperTrees’ at the beautiful Marina Bay.
