National Science Challenge 2018

Whether we see it or not, science is everywhere. From the most complex quantum theories to the simple task of cooking instant noodles, science governs how things work and why it doesn’t. Since Jan 2002, the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and the Singapore Science Centre has been organising a series of exciting science programmes in search of the brightest young minds in Singapore with one aim – to spark an interest in science amongst students as well as members of public. This year, in the 15th edition of the National Science Challenge, teams are about to discover the scientific secrets of our everyday objects and uncover how the greatest scientific inventions changed our lives. But their biggest task is - making science come alive for the audience at home. This is where it all happens – over 6 one-hour episodes, the most outstanding students from secondary schools around the island come and pit their communication, analytical and scientific skills in the ultimate science competition that will decide who reigns as the National Science Challenge 2018 champion!
