The SCS Splash Awards 2017 is back with its 14th edition. This year, in conjunction with the celebration of the SCS 50th Anniversary finale event, the competition was aptly themed “Drone Challenge”.
All in the spirit of creativity, leveling up tech savviness and honing problem-solving skills, this agship event – one of the longest running student infocomm competitions in Singapore – attracted close to 300 student participants from local and international Institutes of Higher Learning, Institutes of Technical Education, Junior Colleges and Secondary Schools.
In this instalment, the competition provided an opportunity for students to dabble in new technology using codable drones. Eventually, it was “TechPomPoms” from Dunman High School which impressed the judging panel with their novel idea of using drones to substitute teachers and educators for mundane tasks such as exam invigilation. Meanwhile, the creative solution of using drones to dispense water and pesticide in agriculture by “Team AVD” from ITE College Central also won them the top prize for the Tertiary Category.
