About the Programme

CATALYST Innovation Project Mentoring Programme is developed by Nullspace to develop the next generation of young innovators and change-makers. Part of our goal is to help students get admitted to the school of their choice through the Direct School Admission Secondary (DSA-Sec) exercise.

Students in this program will be personally mentored by our instructors to develop science and electronics projects of their choice, and to learn skills such as programming, 3D printing, and mechanical design.

To register for CATALYST, students must successfully complete Inventor Certificate Programme: Intermediate 2.

Course Structure & Format

CATALYST sessions are a mixture of small group consultation, project fabrication, and idea presentations. Students will get to build their own personal portfolio website to document and showcase their projects.

Typically each project takes 5 to 8 sessions (each sessions is 2.5 hours) to complete, including ideation, fabrication, documentation. Most students will complete 2-3 projects for their portfolio.
