About NSE and SENSg

Don’t Miss Singapore’s National Science Experiment!

Calling all participating students – the fun and action starts now!

Be prepared: To get you ready for the start of the experiment, we have produced a video giving an overview of the project, the reasons for doing it, and showing the types of data that are being collected.

Be cool: Watch our guide on carrying the  SENSg device around as you go about  your daily activities. Keep it simple – just wear it around your neck or your belt loop for four days for the duration of the experiment.

Be data-wise: And don’t forget to log on to the NSE portal to view your results at the end of the day to find out how you compare against your classmates! Then adjust your activities to measure up!

On the mark, get set, ready and go! Happy walking!

SENSg Device

Watch video on the SENSg device and how it can collect data such as humidity, temperature, pressure, sound, light, and step count. These can be used to deduce whether a student is indoors or outdoors and the travel pattern.

TowerQuest Game Trailer

Watch the trailer to learn more about the fun and exciting TowerQuest game that challenges students to carry the sensor as often as possible. The more steps students take, the more rewards they gain in-game!

National Science Experiment 2016 Results

NSE 2016, held from April to July 2016, saw close to 20,000 students from ITEs and polytechnics participating in the NSE for the first time. Together with students from primary schools, secondary schools and junior colleges, close to 50,000 students from 92 schools and institutions took part in NSE 2016. Data insights from NSE 2016 was shared at the NSE 2016 Big Data Challenge Finale on 23 January 2017. View these videos and photos to find out more about the NSE 2016’s results.

This video recaps NSE 2016 and highlights the Big Data Challenge, which challenged students to use data science tools to come up with innovative applications of data collected during the NSE.

In this video, see how data collected by the SENSg device during NSE 2016 is visualised.

These photos show students from the NUS High School of Mathematics and Science, Nanyang Polytechnic, Maris Stella High School and Singapore Polytechnic at the National Science Experiment Big Data Challenge Finale.

 

National Science Experiment 2015 Results

Over 43,000 students stepped out for science in Singapore’s  National Science Experiment (NSE) from September to November in 2015. Students from 128 primary schools, secondary schools and junior colleges participated. The results of the NSE were released on 10 Dec 2015 at the Science Centre, in conjunction with the launch of Science Centre’s E3: E-mmersive Experiential Environments exhibition. View these videos and photos to find out more about the NSE 2015’s results.

This video provides an overview of the National Science Experiment and the SENSg device that students carried for the NSE.

In this video, find out more about the various types of information collected by the SENSg device –  from travel patterns, noise levels, wifi coverage and more – as well as how these information are relevant.

This video shows how the NSE aims to get Singapore’s students interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

These photos show students from Wellington Primary School, Hong Kah Secondary School, Raffles Institution and St Gabriel’s Primary School taking part in the NSE in 2015.

 

National Science Experiment Pilot Phase

The pilot phase of Singapore’s National Science Experiment (NSE) was conducted from May to July this year. More than 300 students from CHIJ St Nicholas Girls’ School, Tanjong Katong Girls’ School and Cedar Primary School took part in this island-wide outdoor science experiment to collect data on Singaporeans’ lifestyles and the environment. View these videos and photos of the NSE pilot phase.

In this video, hear how students who participated in the pilot phase got excited about big data and science.

This video shows the briefing session at CHIJ St Nicholas Girls’ School, where students were first introduced to the NSE.

This video shows the debrief session at CHIJ St Nicholas Girls’ School, where students learn what insights could be derived from the data collected during the pilot phase.
