Strong scientific base will give S'pore edge to stay ahead: Lawrence Wong
SINGAPORE: Minister of State for Defence and Education Lawrence Wong said a strong scientific base will give Singapore the technological edge to stay ahead. Mr Wong said this at a science competition for schools, The Amazing Science-X Challenge, at the Singapore Science Centre on Saturday. About 140 teams from 63 schools battled for the title of Singapore's most creative science exhibit. Among the quirky winning items are a bicycle that balances itself from Nanyang Polytechnic and a scratched CD that produces a holographic image by Damai Secondary School. The annual competition is in its third year and aims to create interest in science and technology.
