An educational program in Singapore provides a rich array of learning opportunities for a variety of subjects. Tech students can gain first hand insights into tomorrow’s technology on a visit to Fusion Park, science students can get creative as they do their own experiments at Enterprise Innovation Labs and all of our trips take time in between the experiential learning opportunities to have fun and explore the cultural side of Singapore during our city tours.
If you’re a teacher or a school trip organizer considering Singapore as the destination for your next international program, then why not consider adding the following activities to your itinerary:
Become an engineer for the day at an Enterprise Innovation Lab:
For over 10 years, the Singaporean government has been partnering with global-multinationals to create a series of labs which are tasked with the mission of fostering innovation, providing resources for research and development and equipping the next generations of entrepreneurs, business leaders, designers and scientists with the skills they need to succeed.
During a trip with The Learning Adventure, we are able to include a visit to one of these innovation labs where students can tour the lab, have a hands-on experience using the lab equipment and facilities and have a question and answer sessions with a representative from the lab. Popular labs to visit are the ones run by the tech giant Pay Pal or the investment bank DBS. We wrap up all of experiential learning excursions with a brief reflection session, where students are encouraged to review, reflect and consider what they have just experienced.
Given that few places are more of a cultural melting pot than Singapore, it could be argued that Singapore is its own ‘fusion island’, but when we refer to Fusion World we’re actually talking about a gallery designed to showcase the technology developed by Singapore’s Agency for Science Technology and Research.
Students move through a series of themed exhibitions which include a combination of upstream and downstream innovations, which aim to bridge the gap between futurist cutting edge technologies, and how these can be applied to solve the issues tomorrow’s world will face.
The guides, who are themselves virtual avatars, lead the way on this visit whilst providing fascinating learning insights on a range of tech topics ranging from robotics to nanotechnology.
Explore a Dynamic World City:
Our experienced team aims for all of our school trips in Singapore to be perfectly balance between meaningful educational experiences and fun cultural discoveries. Most of our Singapore trips therefore include time seeing the major city sites. A typical city tour includes a group photo at the iconic Merlion Statue, which has become a symbol of Singapore, a trip to the dizzying heights at the top of the space age Marina Bay Sands resort which dominates the Singapore skyline, a lunch of chicken rice at a ‘hawker center’ and an afternoon at Universal Studios on Sentosa Island. There is a lot to see and do in Singapore so it is up to each teacher or trip organiser to let us know how much or little sightseeing you would like included in your school’s learning program.
Singapore is a destination our team are extremely passionate about and we know that after a school trip here, your school’s students will be instilled with a similar passion for this vibrant island full of experiential learning opportunities. All of our student trips to Singapore are tailor made based on your school’s requirements such as trip subject, learning objectives, length of trip and your budget.
