The Singapore Science & Engineering Fair (SSEF) is a national competition organised by the Ministry of Education (MOE), the Agency for Science, Technology & Research (A*STAR) and the Science Centre Singapore (SCS). The SSEF is affiliated to the prestigious Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF),which is the world’s largest pre-college science competition.

SSEF is open to all secondary and pre-university students between 15(as of 1st May 2018) and 20 years of age. Participants are required to submit research projects from the Science Research Programme (SRP), Technology & Engineering Research Programme (TERP), Science Mentorship Programme (SMP) or projects done at school or cluster level.

Students exhibit their projects at the fair, and will be judged by a number of judges from local universities, polytechnics as well as research institutes. Winners will represent Singapore to compete at the Intel ISEF.

The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), the world's largest international pre-college science competition, is held annually in May. It provides a forum for more than 1,500 students from 70 countries, regions and territories to showcase their independent research and compete for more than $4 million in awards.

About ATS

ATS (A*STAR Talent Search) is a initiative from 2006 to reward students who have performed well in scientific research. It is part of the A*STAR Graduate Academy (A*GA)'s Youth Science outreach to schools with the aim to inspire & sustain a passion in science in the young in Singapore. The ATS is organised with the support of Science Centre Singapore.

The ATS is an annual competition which acknowledges and rewards students aged 15 to 20 years old who have a strong aptitude for science & technology. This competition provides students the opportunity to showcase their stellar projects and encourage them to further explore science and technology.

Candidates are required to showcase their research projects in the Singapore Science & Engineering Fair (SSEF) for the first round of judging. Short-listed candidates will then undergo at least two more rounds of selection before the winners emerge. The panel of judges consists of distinguished scientists from local and international universities, as well as A*STAR research institutes and a Nobel Laureate. ATS winners need to display resourcefulness, mastery of scientific concepts, as well as passion for scientific research.
