The workshop will culminate in an exhibition and presentation, when student participants will present solutions and prototypes developed in response to the theme”
The STP3 workshop is a reinvention of the last three editions of the Science, Technology and Policy (STP) workshop, with design thinking as a new element, led by Professor Prof Marc Angélil. It is organised by the Singapore-ETH Centre, together with CARES, TUMCREATE, NUS, NTU, and Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (LKYSPP).
