Winning Essays from Singapore Science Centre

The Walk Through Time essay competition was held in Singapore in September, 1998. Contestants are secondary school students, ages 13-16. The essays were based on:

  • Theme #1 - It is believed that the extinction of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago was pivotal in allowing a great diversity of mammals to evolve and flourish including man. Write an essay based on a day on earth in the year 1998 AD, in a world where dinosaurs did not go extinct.

  • Theme #2 - What is the most significant discovery, invention or field of study in present time that, in your opinion, will have the greatest impact on the evolution of life on earth for the next millennium.

Science Centre has published one of the essays in their magazine "The Singapore Scientist."  SC may plan to publish the essays perhaps on the web later and create additional publicity with related events to usher in the year 2000.
