SONY CREATIVE SCIENCE AWARD 2017 - CREATIVE TOYS COMPETITION

Let your students’ creativity blossom in the annual Sony Creative Science Award (SCSA). It is Singapore’s largest national toy-making competition for primary school students, jointly organised by the Science Centre Singapore and the Sony Group of Companies in Singapore, with the support of the Ministry of Education.

Every year, thousands of primary school students let their creativity run and get their hands down to bringing their amazing ideas to life. Through SCSA, these students get to engage in exploratory and skilful play with the addition of science learning.

 About SCSA

Started in 1998, the Sony Creative Science Award (SCSA) aims to develop and promote interest as well as creativity in science among primary school students in Singapore. It also provides an opportunity to learn science beyond the classrooms, in a fun and enjoyable way.

In this competition, primary school students are invited to use their imagination and creativity to make toys that demonstrate scientific principles. Workshops covering communications, creativity and hands-on sessions for both students and teachers are also provided as part of the SCSA programme.

About 5000 entries from 90 primary schools are received each year, making this competition very popular with students.
