Singapore Science Buskers

Singapore Science Buskers

Previously known as the Science Buskers Festival (SBF), Singapore Science Buskers 2021 will adopt similar competition objectives as SBF and hope to continue developing each individual's communication skills through expressions of science in a creative manner. Participants will still present and do a "show-and-tell" on any science topic. Busking and judging will be based on judges criteria and public voting.

If you are keen to participate in the competition, do indicate your interest by submitting the form here.

The competition format and details will also be shared with you upon submission of the form. The competition timeline will begin from July 2021 with finals held in November 2021.
