Students today do not like to visit museums. The only time they visit any museum is during a school trip or if they have to research on a given task.  Feedback from students shows that they find museums boring and static.  As part of the Museum on Wheels committee, you have been selected by the curator to propose and create a concept that could help the Museum on Wheels project to reach out to students.  The committee feels that if visiting museums is such a chore, why not bring the museums to schools?

The team researched on the Founding of Singapore and created a fresh and interesting concept to educate our youths on Singapore’s rich history and heritage.  Each group submitted a proposal of about 5 pages for an exhibition to be showcased to the public at the end of June. The proposals set clear and concise descriptions on how the exhibition would be presented and showcased to the public. The selected one had a Singapore flavor that was both enriching and exciting to students and youths in Singapore.
