The competition involves primary school teams from Malaysia, Singapore and the Asia Pacific region as well as teams from the public. ISDC is a great platform to showcase participants’ talents and compete at an international level.
ISDC started off from a science drama exchange between China and Singapore in 2013.
The first ISDC was founded by four Asia Pacific Network of Science and Technology Centres (ASPAC) countries in 2016; Singapore, Malaysia, China and Philippines with Thailand and Brunei joining the competition in 2018.
