Every year, two of our Normal Technical students take part in the Media Computing (MEC) Competition as part of their CPA coursework.

This year, the themes given to the secondary 2 and 3 students were “Future of Singapore” and “Shapes and Puzzles” respectively. Secondary 2 students are to create an animation based on their perception of Singapore in the future while the Secondary 3 students are to create a game involving shapes and puzzles.
After the submission of the projects to CPDD, our student, Voo Jun Hong from 3CHR, was shortlisted to vie for one of the three Platinum Awards. In this round, he had to demonstrate the game to the judges and gave an oral presentation about his game. Jun Hong presented his game well and he was awarded with the Platinum Award alongside Dunman Secondary School and Bukit Panjang Government High School.  

Here's a video of Jun Hong's game:
