YOUNG SCIENTIST BADGE SCHEME
The Young Scientist Badge Scheme run by Science Centre Singapore comprises of a series of self-directed activities in different disciplines of science designed for all Primary school students. The objective of this scheme is to stimulate interest in science among primary school children and provide them with the opportunities for students to develop initiative and creativity.
There are 17 different Young Scientist badges that can be earned. On average, it takes about three months to complete one activity card.
To earn a badge,
- Buy an activity card and carry out the activities listed. The card may be purchased at $2.50 each from the Curiosity Shop at Science Centre.
Parents or teachers can provide guidance, but children must carry out the activities themselves.
- The completed activities must be presented to a school teacher. Each completed activity earns the student the corresponding number of stars indicated next to the task for that Young Scientist card. Parents may also acknowledge the completion of up to six stars’ worth of activities.
- Upon earning 15 stars, the card must be submitted to the school teacher who will certify the student’s completion of the card and a badge will then be awarded to the student.
For teachers who wish to purchase the cards in bulk for their students, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
