Themed ‘Sparking Innovation, Igniting Collaboration’, the ISYF Digital 2022 was organised by Hwa Chong Institution (College Section) and supported by the Singapore Ministry of Education.

The event was joined by 111 participants from Brunei Darussalam, Australia, China, Hong Kong SAR, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam.
