Are you game enough for science? Join the National Science Challenge (NSC) and test your knowledge and skills!

A highly competitive televised game show that is broadcast on MediaCorp's Channel 5, the NSC provides Secondary Three students a chance to put their skills and knowledge to the test during studio rounds and at on-site challenges hosted by A*STAR research institutes and other research organisations. Through the series, not only students but members of the public will be able to marvel at how science is in everything around us.

The National Science Challenge (NSC) is running for the 15th season this year. Since Jan 2002, the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and Science Centre Singapore have been organising a series of exciting science programmes on a search for the brightest young minds in Singapore.
