As the Activities Committee, we do our best to ensure that your ISYF experience is fun, enriching and memorable, even as it has been shifted online. We have put together an exciting line-up of activities to allow you to get to know your fellow participants well and bond through your shared passion for science.
The Admin and Operations Committee (AnO) works around the clock to ensure that you can completely immerse yourself in the grandeur and atmosphere of this conference from the comfort of your homes! We run behind the scenes to make this event a memorable experience for everyone.
The Media and Publications Committee (MnP) is responsible for all media projects and efforts such as the ISYF website and social media pages. We hope the content we create will be able to add to and enhance your ISYF experience!
The Dialogue and Discussion Committee (DnD) has an exciting lineup for you! As a delegate, you will have the opportunity to pose questions to scientists, technopreneurs, medical professionals and government officers at the Meet-the-STEM Changemaker Sessions, and gain insights from the sharings of a Millenium Technology Prize winner, eminent scientist Professor Stuart Parkin! See you there!
The first three industrial revolutions of modern society were driven by a series of key inventions such as the steam engine, mass production, and the rise of digital technology. Although made by distinct inventors, each invention played a crucial and synergistic role in the urbanisation and modernisation of society. Amidst the Fourth Industrial Revolution characterised by the advent of Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things, innovation and collaboration will no doubt continue to play a vital role in our lives. By naming the groups after the inventors that have pushed our society forward, we hope that the participants of ISYF 2022 will be able to draw inspiration from these great scientists together with their group mates, and aspire to be the changemakers of the future society.
James Watt (1736 - 1819) improved and adapted the design of the steam engine, making it more cost-effective and extending its use to many other areas other than pumping water.
Thomas Savery (1650 - 1715) invented the first commercially-used steam engine, thus revolutionising the method of pumping water and contributing to the widespread supply of public water.
Alfred Bernhard Nobel (1833 - 1896) invented dynamite, a safer and easier means of harnessing the explosive power of nitroglycerin, and bequeathed his fortune to establish the Nobel Prize.
James Hargreaves (1720 - 1778) contributed to the mechanisation of spinning, which improved the spinning wheels used for weaving of thread in factories.
The contributions Michael Faraday (1791 – 1867) made to the study of electromagnetism and electrochemistry led to the wide application of electricity, which laid the foundation for modern civilisation.
Being described as America’s greatest inventor, Thomas Alva Edison (1847 – 1931) developed many devices such as the electric light bulb and motion picture camera, which had widespread impacts on modern society.
Together with Carl Benz (1844-1929), Gottlieb Daimler (1834-1900) is the pioneer of automobile manufacturing whose invention revolutionised transportation.
William Meriam Burton (1865 - 1954) invented the process of catalytic cracking, which is the first commercially successful method of cracking crude oil into gasoline and its related products.
Together with Gottlieb Daimler (1834-1900), Carl Benz (1844-1929) is the pioneer of automobile manufacturing whose invention revolutionised transportation.
Sir Richard Arkwright (1732 – 1792), “father of the modern industrial factory system”, streamlined machinery, labour and raw materials in his yarn factory, paving the way for the mass production system.
