NUS High School Sweeps Awards at the A*STAR Talent Search 2014
The A*STAR Talent Search (ATS), sponsored by the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and organized with the support of the Science Centre Singapore (SCS), recognizes students who have excelled in scientific research.
The ATS is an annual competition which acknowledges and rewards students aged 15 to 21 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.
Professor Ada E. Yonath, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry 2009 was on the panel in 2014.
