Join early as a Walton Explorer and open the door to an exhilarating six-year adventure! Throughout their Walton journey, participants will continuously expand their knowledge, tackle increasingly sophisticated challenges, and grow into confident, capable, and forward-thinking leaders.
The Walton Explorers Program is tailor-made for young minds in 1st, 2nd and 3rd* years of secondary school. Through immersive 'hands on, minds on' STEM sessions right on campus, students will not only enhance their problem-solving skills but also nurture critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and research abilities.
This program is dedicated to nurturing their STEM curiosity, fostering autonomy. The Walton Explorers experience will culminate with grand showcase events held on the Trinity College Campus where club members demonstrate their newfound skills in a collaborative STEM project.
For inquisitive minds in 3rd*, 4th, 5th and 6th years, the Walton Innovators Program is a platform that further thrives on scientific curiosity, innovation, and imagination.
