Learn@Singapore 2006

The place where I worked at, Shuqun Secondary School participated in the Learn@Singapore competition. It was a yearly affair hosted by the ministry of education to promote the use of technology in daily life.


Jeerin, Jean and Darshan

We went to the Singapore discovery center for this year’s event. This year, we are supposed to complete a teasure hunt and the clues are given through 3G messaging.

It was loads of fun trying to decode and find the clues and getting to the next challenge. It was interesting to note that we took our time and breeze through the clues while other teams were so frantic and pushed each other while trying to complete theirs

We completed it earlier than most teams anyways 😉

Many participants from various schools

Sending the answers and then receiving clues through the 3G phone

And at the end of the event, the team are supposed to create a moblog and blog about their experiences, what they have learnt and about the theme of the event.

There was a similar competition last year while I was attached to another school. But due to certain events, I didn’t pursue it any further. But I wonder how the team will do this year.

  1. Singapore is one of the best places I wish to visit one day.
    Because it is a beautiful and wonderful place from what I have seen on the CNN and you must be fortunate to belong to such a great country. And I pray Nigeria becomes as developed as Singapore very soon.

    Your report was well illustrated.

    God bless.

  2. Hey Marina

    Read you went to Singapore Discovery Centre.

    Do you think you can add me at foxtrotwing@hotmail.com for a MSN Chat?

    Because I’m going for a job interview and would like to know more details about that place.

    Can help?

    Thanks

  3. Thank you Orikinla 🙂 Among different places, there will always be a place somewhere which is very special to us because we’ve spent time there 🙂

    Hi Edmund. What would you like to know about the Singapore Discovery Center? The general info is located on this site and the streetdirectory helps too 🙂

  6. Hi Edmund,

    When I went over to the discovery center, I was impressed by the Iwerks. It had a 5 storey tall screen and the show, ‘On Guard’ that was being shown then, was very well choreographed. I felt that the storyline could be better improved for the ‘common people’ who arent very familliar with army life though.

    I also liked the screen show in the screening room leading to the second level. It was a fun, zany and eyecatching display. Its like a musical, condensed to 10 minutes. I enjoyed that too.

    I dont think there are any of the exhibits which are boring, its a relatively fun place (I say relatively as there was some displays which arent opened yet like the giant quiz room). Maybe the shaper exhibit could have a fixed quest or mission to it.

    Well, I liked the Discovery Center, its about as fun as the Science Center. (I do like the Science Center, by the way)

    Us Jurong people sure have nice places 😉
