About us

The Science and Mathematics Council (SMC) is an event management CCA that can be traced back to the ACSian Science Society in 1954, to Students’ Science Council in 1974. Generations continue built on the SMC’s legacy with organising international-scale science and social enrichment events to participating in prestigious science competitions.

SMC provides students with many opportunities to learn many important skills necessary for joining the workforce such as formatting, planning and developing soft skills while having fun. Students get to plan 2 to 3 major events every year, with the number of participants ranging from hundreds to thousands. Furthermore, many free workshops and learning journeys are conducted for SMC members throughout the year.

As part of promoting an inclusive community, we organised the 11th Heyday 2022, a social enrichment programme for ~150 primary school students diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It was joyful and enriching for the participants, and a humbling experience for us organisers who have gained new perspectives about people with special needs.

In 2022, we had a learning journey to the Senses International for a perfume making session. We had the chance to experiment with different scents and formulate our own unique perfumes and candles. Visiting the Science Centre, we participated in an in-depth 3D Modelling workshop. In addition, our instructors also guided us through the 2D Stack Art workshop using LibreCAD. As a CCA, these learning journeys gave us exposure to the different applications of science and mathematics in the real world.
