The Amazing Science-X Challenge (ASXC) 2016

Organised by DSO National Laboratories (DSO), National University of Singapore (NUS) and Science Centre Singapore (SCS), ASXC 2016 continues to challenge participants to build THE X-hibit with THE X-factor.

Let your creative sparks make science come alive as ASXC 2016 returns with more interesting activities that will enrich and inspire your learning journey!

Open to anyone who dares to dream, create and amaze, ASXC 2016 once again challenges teams to design and build a stand-alone exhibit that best explains a physical science phenomenon. Your exhibit should engage and excite your audience as it expresses the marvels of science through its captivating interactivity.

Simply form a team of three and take the opportunity to build Singapore’s most talked about science exhibit! What's more, stand to win attractive prizes and a chance to gain national acclaim as winning exhibits may be selected to be displayed in Science Centre Singapore.

Due to the increasing number of participating teams over the years, as well as the impressive quality and creativity of many of the entries, the recognition system now includes multiple Gold/Silver/Bronze Medals for each category's winners in order to award excellence without the restrictions of quotas.
