Third Day (28 May, Thursday)

  • Project Sharing Sessions (Note down at least three key learning points)
Unfortunately, I was unable to make it on the final day as I have caught a bad flu which I do not wish go spread to my fellow peers.
  • How do you feel about the SST-NTU Flagship programme?
    • Describe how the programme has affected your understanding of the discipline on a larger scale
    • Share your insights for the programme in general
I found the programme extremely interesting as I got to try out many experiments and use the various machines which cannot be found anywhere else easily. Through the project challenges organized, I have developed a deeper interest for materials science as I started to understand better its importance. With the proper applications of materials science, we are able to create improved devices which could benefit us more. Take the titanic for example. Our student leader explained that it was not only due to the ship hitting the ice berg that it sunk. However, it was also due to the of type materials used to build the ship. She stated that although the metal used was strong in comparison to other ships, it became extremely ductile and brittle when sailed over icy cold temperatures. Thus, it broke easily when it hit the iceberg and sank. In recent years, ships which are to be sailed over cold temperatures, are built with metal that are not affected greatly when exposed to cold temperatures.
