Sony Creative Science Award Celebrates 19 years
The Sony Creative Science Award (SCSA) is Sony’s key CSR programme in Singapore and 2016 marks its 19th year of competition. It continues to receive overwhelming response year on year, with over 9,000 students from 101 Primary Schools submitting 6,432 toys in 2016, the highest participation rate since the competition started. Students between the ages of 7-12 learn about science and creativity through hands-on experience of making a toy, as well as have opportunity to attend technical, creativity and communication workshops conducted by science educators. The 2016 award ceremony on 27 July was officiated by Dr. Janil Puthucheary, Minister of State, Ministry of Education and Ministry of Communications and Information.
South Africa Mobile Library Project
As part of Sony’s global corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative, we are supporting the South Africa Mobile Library Project by SAPESI (South Africa Primary Education Support Initiative) which impacts the lives of our next generation by improving literacy levels. By donating English children’s books to the project, we help make a difference in the learning experience of South African students who are faced with a shortage of English language books.
