The Rise of Computing at JWSS
The Digital Evolution is upon us
To narrow the digital divide, various government schemes and initiatives were launched to reach out to the population so that more people can harness technology effectively to improve their lives and contribute to society.

BuildingBloCS@NYP (organised by Dunman High School and Nanayang Polytechnic)
The inaugural event - for students by students BuildingBloCS High School Computer Science Conference was a 2-day event organised by Dunman High School and Nanyang Polytechnic. The conference programme contained talks by invited speakers from the industry (such as Google, Science Centre, IMDA) and academia, students' projects showcase, application development workshops (with the BBC Micro:bit and Python), a mini competition and short lightning talks in which participants shared their knowledge and experiences. Our students were given the unique and memorable opportunity of working in teams, with members from different schools and coming up with innovative solutions.

CodeWerkZ Computing Bootcamp@Jwss
In June this year, we conducted a 2-day non-residential Computing Boot Camp at Jurong West Secondary School, in partnership with the National Institute of Education, Codomo Pte Ltd and Carousell Pte Ltd. The objective of the camp was to expose the students to Computer Science, through lectures, videos, games and competitions. The practical sessions included unplugged activities, python programming, physical computing – using BBC micro:bits, presentation by the various groups and drone manipulation. The highlight of the event was the trip to Carousell, where the students had a dialogue session with the lead Software Engineer on software development, followed by the tour of the premises. The students left the camp, looking forward to more such trips to stimulate their mind.
