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.
