GENERAL EDUCATION PROGRAMME
For General Public & School Students
Science Arts actively encourages our younger generation to get to know and understand TCM culture and its 5000years of history, so as to pass on TCM knowledge and culture through the generations. In 2006, Science Arts hosted inaugural “TCM Cultural Camp” initiated by the Singapore Ministry of Education. Nearly a hundred students and teachers from higher institutions participated in this event. Through this event, they learnt basic TCM knowledge such as Chinese herbs, acupuncture, tuina massage and TCM diet therapy etc. As students displayed a deep interest in TCM culture and events were well-received, Science Arts TCM College continues to provide learning opportunities to the general public through specially-tailored programs and educational activities.
The GEP caters to the general public, with two main course types: lecture focused (Wellness Series) and activity focused (Chinese Martial Arts for Fitness). The courses aim to equip the general public with basic practical knowledge of TCM and Chinese culture, and apply them for the benefit of health and wellness.

2) Ba Duan Jin and Ba Gua Zhang
The practice of the Eight Diagrams Palm fully mobilizes the coordination of the joints of the whole body, and the body is constantly twisted, turned, wrapped. It is both an aerobic exercise and a form of dynamic Qigong that helps regulate the body and mind. Reversing the circle, positive and negative practice and pair training not only challenge the mental thinking but also strengthen the coordination of the whole body. It is a great way for physical and mental cultivation.
