Invitation to become Energy Innovation Challenge mentors for NED 2021

The Energy Innovation Challenge (EIC) is a competition that is held as part of NED each year, jointly organised by IES, Science Centre Singapore and the Singapore Nuclear Research and Safety Initiative. EIC aims to interest, excite and enable students to understand and experience how engineering plays a part in their daily lives.

IES would like to invite all members to volunteer as mentors to participating students who may be from secondary schools, junior colleges, ITEs, or polytechnics, and share with them your extensive experience and knowledge in engineering, as they prepare for the challenge.
