About Us

Science Chronicles is a science fiction writing competition organised by Science Centre Singapore (SCS). This is in conjunction with the UNTAME Festival, that celebrates Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in a multi-dimensional experience.

The competition aims to foster a new generation of scientific thinkers and writers who let their imagination reign free when it comes to the infinite potential of science and technology.

Science Chronicles is open to all students in Singapore of ages 15 – 18. Students are given free rein to pen their literary creations while including elements of science and technology within their storyline.

Science Chronicles is a literary quest that seeks to:

  • Identify budding writers among the student cohort.
  • Promote the applications of science, technology, engineering and mathematics to everyone.
  • Encourage imaginative thoughts of science and technology of the future among students.
  • Build a new breed of scientific thinkers and visionaries who can fuse the applications of science and research with the art of imaginative literary creation.
