A New Generation of Young Toy Makers Emerge at the Sony Creative Science Awards 2020
Over 3,000 primary school students participated in the 23rd edition of the annual toy-making competition aimed at inspiring creativity and innovation
Singapore, 12 November 2020 – Singapore’s largest toy-making competition, Sony Creative Science Awards (SCSA), celebrated its 23rd run this year with 2,390 original toy submissions from over 3,000 students across 67 schools. Jointly organised by the Science Centre Singapore and the Sony Group of Companies in Singapore, with the support of the Ministry of Education, the initiative is designed to empower primary school students to explore skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), and unlock beyond-the-classroom creativity.
This year’s award ceremony was held virtually, with 29 students between the ages of six and 12 being awarded for outstanding toys in two categories – Junior Whizkid for lower primary students, and Whizkid for upper primary students. The creations were assessed based on four-tier criteria spanning the implementation of scientific principles, design and conceptualisation, contribution to the toy-making process and level of active participation. Special awards were also presented to students with toys demonstrating exceptional merit such as a clear educational or engineering grasp.
