Science Buskers 

The Science Buskers Festival Competition is an annual event where contestants will do a "show-and-tell" on any science topic, and judging will be based on audiences' votes and judges' scores. This event is organised during the Singapore Science Festival by Singapore Science Centre. In 2017, we clinched the Judges Choice Award - Proof of Concept and in 2018, we managed to get 1st Runner Up! 


  • To engage pupils through inter-disciplinary student-centred activities and to provide an opportunity for pupils to explore the inter-connectedness of disciplines with respect to environment issues.

A collaboration with ITE, where students are exposed to learning of Science concepts through hands-on authentic learning, thereby seeing Science in everyday lives and hence inspiring them to pursue Science courses in ITE.
