Singapore Science and Engineering Fair
The Singapore Science & Engineering Fair (SSEF) is a national competition organised by the Ministry of Education (MOE), the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and the Science Centre Singapore (SCS). The SSEF is affiliated to the prestigious Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), which is regarded as the Olympics of science competitions.
SSEF is open to all secondary and pre-university students between 15 and 20 years of age. Participants can submit research projects which are student-initiated or from programmes such as Youth Research Programme (YRP), Nanyang Research Programme (NRP), Science Mentorship Programme (SMP), Science Research Programme (SRP), Technology & Engineering Research Programme (TERP) and Young Defence Scientists Programme (YDSP) or projects done at A*STAR research institutes and schools. The project topics range across all areas of science and engineering.
Students exhibit their projects at the fair, and will be judged by a number of judges from local universities, polytechnics as well as research institutes. Winners will represent Singapore to compete at the Intel ISEF.
The Intel ISEF is held annually in May and attracts over 1,300 students from 48 states in America and 40 nations to compete for scholarships of over US$2 million, tuition grants, scientific equipment and scientific fieldtrips.
