S1 & S2 Content Mastery Course
Become Great At Tackling Questions on “Atoms, Ions & Molecules”!
What Your Child Will Learn
During this 2-day content-packed masterclass, we’ll work closely with your child to improve his/her answering techniques to tackle questions on the topic of Atoms, Ions & Molecules.
🧱 Understand Key Science Concepts From This Topic
✅ Learn how to read the periodic table of elements skilfully: Identify the number of electron shells and valence electrons based on Periods & Groups & learn more about noble gases.
✅ Learn the structure of Atoms, Ions & Molecules (… we’ll also compare the 3 types of sub-atomic particles and how to interpret nuclear and periodic table notations.)
✅ Understand how to derive the number of sub-atomic particles using formulas (… we’ve made it extremely simple with worked examples and step-by-step guides!)
✅ Compare the similarities & differences between isotopes (… plus learn how to derive the relative atomic mass of an element based on isotopes)
✅ Understand how to draw & write the electronic configuration of an atom, a cation and anion (… we’ll also cover the step-by-step method of creating a ‘dot and cross’ diagram.)
✅ Discover how ionic and covalent bonds are formed.
✅ Learn how to name & write the chemical formula of ionic compounds and molecules (… it is also important to know how to derive the type of elements as well as the ratio of atoms from the chemical formula.)
🚀 Valuable Examination-centric Resources To Accelerate Understanding
Your child will NOT leave this workshop empty-handed.
Not only will our Secondary Science Specialists take your child through the step-by-step process of tackling Atoms, Ions & Molecules questions, we’ll also provide your child with beautifully-illustrated notes, worksheets and worked examples that are designed to help students learn this Chemistry topic easier, better and faster.
These valuable resources will help to shorten the learning curve tremendously. You and your child can expect to save lots of valuable time and frustration trying to figure out what examination setters are looking out for.
Here’s a sample what your child will receive…
💣 Avoid ‘Concept Traps’ That Cause Most Students To Lose Marks Unnecessarily
It is important to have an understanding of the common conceptual pitfalls so that your child can learn to avoid them. We also included little ‘warning notes’ to remind students of potential misconceptions in their syllabus.
For example, we’ll show your child how to avoid writing chemical formulas or naming compounds/molecules incorrectly.
Do not underestimate these tips as they will help your child improve the odds of scoring an A for his/her Science examination!

About Your Child’s Instructors
Your child will be taught by one of these instructors from our Secondary Science Specialist team.
Ms. Lim Zi Ai
Over the past 10 years, she has worked with students from a wide spectrum of backgrounds – from the extremely weak to the highly gifted. This is accompanied by an impressive track record of having 80% of her students score As and A*s in their Science examinations.
As a Psychology graduate from the National University of Singapore, she actively seeks to use child psychology techniques to get her students to be intrinsically motivated to learn Science. Her secret lies in helping the child rediscover their interest for learning through her wide arsenal of humorous and inspiring teaching methods.
Mr. Firhad Rohani
Mr Firhad is a Ministry of Education (MOE) trained teacher with a Bachelor's Degree in Biology from the National University of Singapore (NUS). After 15 years of experience in teaching, he believes that in engaging his students actively to sustain their interest in learning. By utilising a well-planned lesson, scaffolding and purpose-driven activities, he creates an environment where students can acquire knowledge and skills actively.
Drawing insights from his Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE), he emphasises on the subject's real-world applications and relevance, making the concepts easier to digest. For knowledge retention, he relies on routine and structure. With these components in place, he believes that experiential learning can take shape more efficiently.
Mr. Kenneth Mak
Mr. Kenneth Mak is the co-founder & Secondary Science Specialist of The Pique Lab. When it comes to secondary school Science, he is the go-to guy!
With more than 11 years of teaching experience, he has experimented with plenty of studying strategies, keywords & template answers. He knows what works for the student and what doesn’t. Using the proven techniques from our Complete Concept Integration™ program, he has helped more than 80% of his students clinch As and A*s during the PSLE Science examination.
Seasoned by experience, he is known among parents for building rapport with his students & helping them achieve tremendous academic results in the shortest period of time.
Here’s What Your Child Will Receive
When your child enrolls today, he/she can look forward to get access to:
- 4 Hours of Lesson Time on Atoms, Ions & Molecules
- 24 Pages of Beautifully Illustrated Science Notes

Here's How Keep Your Child Safe With Enhanced Measures
From the beginning, your child's safety and well-being have always been important to us. We will be adopting a series of government-mandated measures to make our onsite experience as safe as possible for our learners.
SafeEntry Registration & Temperature Screening
Every student authorised to attend onsite lessons will need to report to the Temperature Screening Station before attending the class:
(i) Undergo health screening (temperature taking & health declaration)
(ii) Check in via TraceTogether only if the following conditions are met:
- You/your child have not had close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case in the past 14 days
- You/your child are not currently under a Quarantine Order or Stay-Home Notice
- You/your child do not have a fever or flu-like symptoms
- You/your child agree to the terms and consent to the collection and use of your information for the purpose of COVID-19 contact tracing
✳️ Please ensure that your child brings along his/her TraceTogether token or mobile phone with the TraceTogether App to facilitate the SafeEntry processing.
(1) The TraceTogether Token or App is mandatory from 1 June 2021 onwards. Students without the token or the app will not be allowed to enter the premises.
(2) SafeEntry Check-in via SingPass or Mobile QR code will no longer be accepted from 17 May 2021 onwards. Scanning of barcodes on personal identification cards to check in to venues will still be allowed until 31 May 2021.
(3) If your child is living in the same household as a family member who is unwell, he/she should not be attending his/her onsite lesson for that particular week.
(4) Staff and students who are unwell (i.e. fever or respiratory symptoms) will not be allowed to enter our premises.
Revised In-Class Seating Arrangement
Students attending onsite lessons (up to 7 in a class) will be split into two groups with at least 1-metre distancing between both groups.
As much as possible, we will attempt to assign onsite classes across all of our classrooms in the other units on the same level to avoid intermingling between students.
Entry/exit timings of all students will also be staggered.
Serene Centre: #02-05A/#02-17A/#02-20
Crown Centre: #01-06/#01-07
Disinfection Between Classes & Regular, Extensive Sanitisation Efforts
Classrooms will also be thoroughly sanitised before and after classes.
We have also stepped up our sanitisation efforts in classrooms and common areas with the use of NEA-approved professional cleaners.
Deep cleaning by fogging non-toxic, skin-friendly chemicals have also been scheduled on a weekly basis.
Use of Masks
All students will be required to wear a mask at the Centre. Students can choose to wear a face shield on top of a mask for additional protection if desired.
Easy Access to Sanitisers
Automated hand sanitiser dispenser machines have also been installed along all common areas for students to use when necessary.
Safe Distancing Control In Common Areas
Aside from the installation of safe distancing markers on the ground, safe distancing ambassadors will also be deployed to remind students to keep a safe distance from each other.
As much as possible, parents who are picking up their children should make pick-up arrangements at Level 1 to avoid crowding the waiting areas.
Changes to Reception Operations
Our Reception will also remain CLOSED for enquiries and payment.
