About the Event
The annual East Zone A*STAR Science Fair Competition organised for Secondary Schools is held at the end of July / early Aug as part of the East
Zone Science Carnival.
To help schools and student groups with their project entries, we will be
holding East Zone A*STAR Science Fair Symposium where the participants will get to learn the basics of science research which includes searching for literature review, hypothesis testing, conduct of experimentation and discussion of results.
- Presentations by previous science fair winners who will share their findings as well as their experiences in their science research.
- Workshops conducted for the students to learn how to identify and formulate hypothesis for testing. Often in an experiment, there are many variables that can affect the final results.
Students need to learn how to identify these variables and how changes can possibly lead to change in result, a common methodology for science research. To ensure accuracy in the experiment conducted, students need to learn how to identify all other possible variables that can affect the experiments and keep all but one constant.
There will be three types of workshops conducted, namely in the area of chemistry, biology and physics.
1) Secondary school students who are interested in carrying out science research
projects/ science fair projects
2) Secondary school science students who would like to see how their secondary
school peers have applied their knowledge of science to real life problems and
Registration is now closed.
