Hillgrove’s Flight & Aerospace Niche was featured in pages 20 and 21 in 2nd September 2013 Today’s newspaper. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/growing-interest-in/798670.html
The school is currently collaborating with SP and the Education Ministry's Educational Technological Division to further develop flight and aerospace lessons and resources. At the lower secondary level, students will be introduced to elementary science and maths concepts such as speed and area, so they can construct and fly airplane models.
Upper secondary students will learn how to apply physics and mathematical concepts to construct simulations in rocket science. For example, Sec 3 students will apply aero-engineering concepts such as vectors and acceleration to construct computer simulations in the different phases of a rocket's flight.
