Shell Singapore Youth Science Festival


Introduced in 1978, the Singapore Youth Science Festival (SYSF) has undergone a couple of title modifications to reflect the changing times. Originally known as Singapore Youth Science Fortnight and later, Singapore Youth Science Festival (SYSF), it has now been re-named as Shell Singapore Youth Science Festival (SSYSF).

The SSYSF is a national event jointly organised by Science Centre Singapore, the Science Teachers’ Association of Singapore and the Shell Companies in Singapore. Since its inception, SSYSF has become an integral part of the schools' calendar with over 100,000 students (across Primary, Secondary and Pre-University levels) and educators participating in its activities annually.

This shall be the 37th year that the event has been annually organised.
The objectives of the SSYSF are:

  • To give youth a deeper insight into science and technology.
  • To provide young scientists an opportunity to discuss scientific problems and the implications of science on society.
  • To allow educators of youth to exchange views and experiences in science education. 

The details of this year's programmes are listed below:
