Chess is a strategy game played by millions of people and it has greatly evolved with the appearance of machine learning engines such as AlphaZero. Similar to how chess brings together people of different cultures and countries, ISYF 2020 aims to unite delegates with their own respective opinions of the Sciences. Using the chessboard as a base, the design also reflects the ISYF Amazing Race, where delegates will navigate Singapore’s iconic landmarks and apply creative thinking to complete various challenges as a group.

In accordance with the theme “Evolving Aspirations: Diverging Pathways, Convergent Future”, this design depicts the evolution of mankind from our ancestral roots to modern technological-savvy society. At the same time, Science too, progressed in tandem with mankind’s evolution as represented by the different icons (Newton’s Cradle, Bohr model) linked to various fields of Science. Ultimately, these fields of Science are interconnected, joined together by the common goal of driving the advancement of our civilization, illustrating the “convergent future” shared by mankind.

The very idea of space exploration has a sense of mystery and excitement about it. Being ever-curious, humans have always wanted to venture into space, hoping to find the answers to our terrestrial problems and live a better life. This design depicts Stella — the ISYF 2020 mascot — leading spaceships from different origins on a space exploration journey, all with the convergent goal of charting a better course for mankind’s future. Featuring different fields of science such as chemistry, biology, and physics, Stella shows the underlying importance of how these vastly different subjects all work hand-in-hand towards the single convergent goal to better mankind’s future, which, as a fiery arrow of passion and innovation, propel us to make sense of the unknown.
