the Sea Lords of the Sea Who Maritime Experiential Museum What Programme introduce the ancient Maritime Silk road This upper primary programme introduced the ingenuity and courage of the earliest maritime explorers in Southeast Asia and the cultural heritage that developed in the lands flanking the course of their journeys HandsonLearning ploughed through 700 years of maritime history to identify the uniqueness of major ancient port cities as well as the importance played by these cities in the exchange of goods ideas and cultures Delighted with the experience students repeatedly asked for more of such similar experiences Singapore History Workshop New Nation Singapore History Workshop New Nation Who National Museum of Singapore What Programme to highlight the struggles of a newly independent Singapore This programme aimed to impart a sense of the socio economic and political struggles of the newly independent Singapore to secondary school students The primary challenge when developing this programme was in overcoming a general indifference towards these struggles as young Singaporeans today were unable to identify with them By the same token the programme was a tremendous opportunity to convey the importance of tough but rational choices in nation building Participants commented that this experience was a fun yet eye opening window on the struggles of a new nation Tales of Old Singapore Tales of Old Singapore Who National Museum of Singapore What Programme to introduce the founding myths and legends of Singapore This programme introduced lower primary students to the founding myth of Singapura surrounding the island s discovery by Prince Sang Nila Utama Young children are always intrigued by stories Hence the curriculum was designed such that participants reenacted the tale of the prince s discovery and voyage complete with props and songs The participants also had an entertaining tour of the museum s Port City gallery This programme skillfully and effectively made use of the museum s collections and its gallery design to fully engage young children in learning about early Singapore Get Smart with Art Auction Time Get Smart with Art Auction Time Who Singapore Art Museum What Programme to introduce contemporary art of Southeast Asia This programme gave exposure to teenagers who had no prior experience to contemporary art of Southeast Asia Concerned about sparking interest among non art students the team decided not to solely focus on art and the technicalities of producing these master pieces Instead art was introduced through an exciting exercise art auctioning When well thought through and executed art can indeed spark rigorous and deep conversations and be appreciated and enjoyed by even viewers with no or limited experience of the field Explore Ancient Egypt Explore Ancient Egypt Who National Museum of Singapore What Programmes to introduce the arts culture and history of ancient Egypt Three school programmes were developed in conjunction with the blockbuster exhibition Quest for Immortality The World of Ancient Egypt a travelling exhibition at the National Museum of Singapore As visiting exhibitions on this subject are rare HandsonLearning did not want to miss the opportunity to introduce the wonderful world of ancient Egypt to our local students In order to make the experience as accessible as possible props such as papyrus and hieroglyphic stamps were internationally sourced so that students unable to touch the artefacts would be able to handle these instead Secrets of the Sunken Ship Secrets of the Sunken Ship Who Maritime Experiential Museum What Programme to introduce maritime archaeology The area of focus for this secondary school programme required participants to have prior knowledge of this highly specialised and technical field The programme cleverly incorporated bits of information which climaxed in the participants role playing as archaeologists studying an undersea wreck The workshop was a huge favourite amongst teachers and students alike for developing critical thinking inference making and historical investigative skills Singapore History Workshop The Japanese Occupation Singapore History Workshop The Japanese Occupation Who National Museum of Singapore What Programme to get students to re think about the Japanese Occupation This programme for secondary school students not only highlighted the horrors of war it also illuminated the point that history far from being the passive and recitative discipline which many perceived it to be was actually interesting and alive for being ripe with controversy Rather than information downloading detailed storytelling to flesh out historical characters was used The presentation and discussions of lesser known counterfactual historical evidence were also included to challenge students assumptions This thought provoking and stirring experience also effectively conveyed the imperative of conflict solving in less violent ways
