What is the Future of Science in Singapore? by 3M and TEDxSingapore

Science is among the most powerful tools that solves the world's toughest problems. How much are Singaporeans excited or sceptical about the future of science? Where do we stand in comparison to other countries?

Global science company 3M and the TEDxSingapore community are excited to host an engaging community discussion exploring the attitudes towards the image, impact, and expectations of Science among people in Singapore. Also, find out how Singapore compares with other global cities as we will discuss the latest findings of a global survey that was recently conducted by an independent research firm on behalf of 3M.

How optimistic or pessimistic are Singaporeans towards the topic of science?
Is the future impact of science in Singapore bright?
Join our diverse panel to explore these questions and more
