Sony Creative Science Award
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.

Creativity & Communication Workshop
Educators will introduce the “Creative” journey to good toy designs (brainstorming, journaling, prototyping, etc.) to students and impart skills for effective presentation of their creation to the audience (storytelling and contents of a presentation poster). There will be a group activity and lots of hand-outs.
Basic techniques of toy-making will be touched on as well as the exploring of using scientific concepts in creating a toy.
Prepare Your Students Workshop (For Teachers)
Teachers will be introduced to the science of tinkering, exploring common tools and materials to build interactive toys with hands-on activities. Bring back your own creations to demonstrate to students even teachers too can make something truly creative!
Schools are recommended to attend all workshops. Different groups of the students can attend the workshops, and the information can be shared with other students in the class.
