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.
SCSA Resource Cloud Drive
A Google drive to provide students and teachers with all available resources such as useful collateral, Blue Ribbon and Diamond Award forms and the new online submission template will be shared soon.
The SCSA competition involves 2 main categories:
- Junior WhizKid Category - Primary 1 & 2
In this category, Primary 1 & 2 participants will have to incorporate strings (eg. nylon and raffia strings, twine, thread) as a functional component and not a decorative component
in their creation.
- WhizKid Category - Primary 3 to 6
In this category, Primary 3 to 6 participants can submit any toy creation that demonstrates scientific concepts creatively and submit a journal of the toy-making process together with the toy.
