Asia Math Engineering Challenge (AMEC) 2018

Date: 5th to 9th June 2018

““There’s nothing I believe in more strongly than getting young people interested in science and engineering, for a better tomorrow, for all humankind.”

Bill Nye


AMEC gives you the opportunity to enjoy maths and engineering, to develop creative thinking ability and problem solving skills, as well as teamwork.  

  • No prior knowledge on programming required!
  • Identify Problems at home and community and Create Solution from Engineering Project!


AMEC in 2018 will take an approach on Smart Cities. Participants will see how smart cities and our urban environment run hand in hand, and what technology can do to improve our quality of lives. Through collaboration, participants can come up with world changing solutions.

AMEC encompasses robotics workshop, robotics competition, engineering-challenge activities, as well as team bonding activities to make friends from students from all over the region. The robotics competition encourages participants to design and conceive innovative solutions to challenging tasks that will only be revealed during the competition. Students are expected to work in a team to accomplish the tasks in a specific timeframe. AMEC will provide students with opportunities to develop their creative thinking ability and problem solving skills, as well as teamwork.

Robotics Workshop, Competition and invention challenge are powered by NullSpace (YA’s value partner), a Singapore based company which has been conducting robotics, science and enrichment programmes for Singapore Schools under Ministry of Education.

AMEC Junior is open for students aged 9 to 12 years old, and AMEC senior is open for students aged 13 to 16 years old.
