This year, we had the opportunity to coach Woodgrove Primary, who won the Most Feasible and Sustainable Award in the National Thinkers Challenge 2022 by Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan!

Out of 52 teams, the team placed in the top 3 teams, and clinched 1 out of the 5 awards presented. This competition aims to let students think of innovative tech solutions and this year’s theme was food wastage, and the students created a prototype mobile app incorporating Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Here is the Woodgrove Primary Team during their Award Presentation!

Congratulations to the team who worked hard on their mobile app! They definitely deserved to be featured in 8world for their brilliant project. We are proud to be able to mentor these young talented coders and see the amazing work that they have created at the end of the journey. Thank you, Educator Edmund, for your brilliant coaching and mentorship of the team!


To boost Singapore’s Smart Nation capabilities, the inaugural National Thinkers Challenge (NTC) hopes to introduce to primary school pupils the concepts of design thinking, artificial intelligence (AI) and other emerging technologies. Organised by the Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan, the competition this year drew 232 upper primary pupils from 37 schools.
