Introduction briefing for the event
a. There will be a briefing for interested parties for the festival on 29 May 2014 at 3PM. The briefing session will provide more details of the various rounds in the competition, discuss more tips for effective busking, showcase winners from past years as well as provide further details for those who are new to this event.
b. This year, there will be a new category called “I-Inspire”. This is specially catered for all the educators out there. Educators have been performing science experiments in front of endless number of school children, almost on a daily basis.
What we hope to do through this, is for you to do the same thing but show it to a wider audience on a larger platform. Imagine the educators inspiring the audience, made up of parents and members of the public, to love science and show that it can be fun and interesting!
c. The closing date for the briefing has now been extended to 26 May 2014, to allow more interested participants to sign up and have a better understanding of what this event is all about. So please do come!
