    To earn a badge

    Buy an activity card and carry out the activities listed. The card may be purchased at $2.50 each from Science Centre Singapore’s Curiosity Shop.

    You may seek advice from your parents or teachers, but you must carry out the activities yourself.

    Present the completed activities to your school teacher, who will acknowledge that you have completed the activity.

    Each completed activity earns you the corresponding number of stars indicated.

    Parents may also acknowledge the completion of up to 6 stars worth of activities.

    Upon earning 15 stars, submit the card to your teacher who will also certify that you have completed the card and a badge will be awarded.

    For teachers who wish to purchase the cards in bulk for your students, you may contact questaclub@science.edu.sg
