Science Outreach Activities
From participating in science festivals and insightful lectures conducted by eminent scientists to hands-on experimentation, our outreach programmes are designed to inspire budding scientists, engineers and researchers and even science teachers to delve deeper into the world of science. Our outreach activities also enable us to reach out to talented youths at all levels and encourage them to consider a career in the field of Science and Engineering.
See how science and technology can transform our future in ways we never imagined. Explore the future of work, health and living, with our experiential demos, workshops and open houses, and hear more from the one-north ecosystem and beyond. The Festival is organised by A*STAR and JTC.

Singapore Science Festival
Spanning several weeks from July to August, the Singapore Science Festival (SSF) is an annual science carnival targeted at the general public to showcase the wonders of science in our daily lives.
Attendees can participate in various programmes that are put together by A*STAR research institutes, tertiary institutions, universities, public and private organisations. The line-up includes X-periment!, Maker Faire Singapore, Science Buskers Festival, STAR Lecture, exhibitions, talks, tours and open houses.
X-periment! is a three-day science event that brings some of the latest scientific research out of the labs of A*STAR, polytechnics, universities and other public and private institutions to the public.
Visitors can have fun with hands-on activities at the booths at X-periment!, watch awe-inspiring science demonstrations and interact with local researchers .
Experience thought-provoking and entertaining science shows delivered by renowned scientists in the STAR Lectures.
A collaboration between the Royal Institution from Great Britain, A*STAR and the Science Centre Singapore, the STAR Lecture brings Singaporean youths on a journey of scientific discovery and inspiration through an interactive presentation by a practicing scientist.
The STAR Lecture is presented live for three days in July/August and scheduled for a delayed broadcast on MediaCorp Channel 5.
Past episodes of the STAR Lectures can be viewed on toggle.sg
Teacher Local Research Attachment Programme
A collaboration between A*STAR and the Ministry of Education (MOE), the Teacher Local Research Attachment Programme enables Upper Secondary and Junior College science teachers to keep pace with current science research, carry out their own research and interact with scientists.
The programme aims to empower teachers with the confidence to communicate the research process and the applications of science to their students. Participating teachers will also gain useful skills that will enhance their capacity in their roles as advisors and mentors for their students’ research projects.
During the four to six-week attachment, teachers will conduct research in a lab within the A*STAR Research Institutes and benefit from the guidance of a scientist mentor.
