LEARNING TO BE THE BEST, FROM THE BEST.
MOTIVATING BEYOND THE CLASSROOM
Every so often, we meet somebody who truly inspires us to excel. We are excited to introduce this highly respected program from our Singapore campus to Stamford, where we invite the world’s most inspirational minds, industry leaders, artists and athletes to engage with our students, invigorating, inspiring and motivating them with the drive to excel in their chosen paths.
We place a special emphasis on science in our curriculum and offer a problem-based Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Innovation (STEMinn) Program to challenge students in these disciplines through critical thinking and real-world application. On Tuesday, May 9th, we invited Dr. Bunhead to delight children and their parents with a mesmerizing scientific experiment exploring the unique properties of liquid nitrogen. Dr. Bunhead also talked about the life of being a family theater performer and the benefits of engaging in a STEMinn Program from young. After meeting Dr. Bunhead, children enjoyed experimenting and making their own hypotheses with science kits such as Energy Sticks and Gotcha Gadgets.

Medalists, record-holders and other renowned sportsmen and women coach and inspire Stamford students on the spirit of competition and their own fascinating experiences that have made them household names. Students have even had the opportunity to compete against their sporting heroes. As an example, our Stamford competitive swim squad trained and relayed against American Olympic Medalists and World Record Swimmers Jessica Hardy, David Plummer, Micah Lawrence, Kevin Cordes and Nathan Adrian.
