National Science Challenge 2017

The National Science Challenge (NSC) competition is an annual science competition targeted at Form 4 science students. It is organized by the Academy of Sciences Malaysia and ExxonMobil in collaboration with the Ministry of Education Malaysia.

This year, Kolej Yayasan Saad sent two representatives, Muhammad Mukhriz Mokhtar and Aarif Wafeeq Baharozaman to participate in this challenge. We emerged champion and reclaimed the coveted Prime Minister’s Challenge Trophy after losing it in 2013 to our opponent. This victory earned the winners and their mentor teacher a once-in-a-lifetime ticket to Stockholm, Sweden to attend the Nobel Prize Awards ceremony and Nobel Lectures.
