iSpace is one of the main events for the Infocomm Club Ambassadors year, which is started in 2006. The event is held yearly in Science Center for Primary School students to engage them into the unlimited possibilities of Science and Technology. The mindblowing exhibits allow students to learn more about day to day products and services in the commercial world.
After 1.5 months of planning, its finally execution day for all ambassadors and secondary facilitators (From outside schools). Lets dive in and take a sneak peek on what it is like to be part of the planning division on the day before iSpace!
The meeting, as usual, for the whole board in the Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) office.
The emcee’s rehearsing their lines and speeches.
Like every company, our boss is there to screen thru it.
Preparation of papers and stickers for tomorrow’s (D-day) distribution.
Preparation and calibration for media devices and logistics packing.
A small night meal for some ambassadors, (Some left early).
This is my second year running at Yuan Ching Secondary for Trybe, running the Dare to Dream programme, like I did last year.
Students playing with the Cup Stacking game, with an agreement for sweets!
Unforgettable, I have to say!
It is on a Saturday and it will be running until 2pm, from 7am.
Like every Trybe event, briefing is something not to be missed, it provides facilitators with valuble information for whats coming up.
This year, we will be taking the whole of Secondary 2 of Yuan Ching Secondary 2010.
We conducted the usual profiling for students and got to know what they are good in so they can find their future career path in what they are good at.
We also got them to write their names and what they are good in, and particularly for this guy, he is good in everything.
For this year in change, we have lots of interactive lessons instead of theory, the plan allowed lots of human interactions and activities.
One such example of a activity, is showing different types of expression of different types of profiles.
Leovine explaining about an activity about to begin.
It goes beyond just, reading, studying and mugging. Activity also includes smell and identifying different types of scent.
I would like to wrap-up the whole activity with just the school motto.
Ending Thoughts: I felt that with new practical activities, students understanding level will definitely rise up as compared to the normal theory work. Students felt that they have control of their future and understand their future paths with this programme. This will enable them to find out what they are good at and take steps to improve at it.

Visited Trybe Centre at Tampinies recently, had a great meal with the staff at Trybe!
Had lunch there, kindly sponsored by Yat!, an intern at Trybe which got the prata’s from the coffee shop nearby. Which taste great!
After doing some cleaning up at the kitchen.. We headed out for some drinks. Which Mirabel wished to talk to me about some stuff.
The Vanilla Blended which I ordered.
Mirabel told me about many things in Trybe that happened and after those, we chat and she gave me a super nice plastic bag worth of items!
Agree with me the packing is so good and neat!
It is a tiny shoe, letter and t-shirt.
Lets start off with the shoe.
The shoe writes, Trybe 09′
It is clearly and nicely writtened!
On the inverse side, it says..
Secondly, the T-Shirt!
This T-Shirt is XS Size XL Size. And it is quite big for me still. This shirt is nicely made by machine and it is very cooling 🙂
It includes ‘Mr Publicity’ behind the shirt. Unique!
Thirdly, and most importantly, the letter!
The card pops out on my hand and it has the organization’s logo and website on it. Very professionally done!
I will not mention about the content inside 🙂 So cheesy!!
Fourthly, The Singapore Flyer Tickets!
I have never been there before. Now its a dream to take a look at the biggest ferry wheel in Singapore.
(Looks at the ticket, dreamingly..)
Thank you for the post Chinese New Year gift, Trybe!
I have been thinking about something lately. Sometimes, this thought really strikes me about the quality of life.
I have a friend and the parents has been extremely tight to the daughter. Lets put it in this way, the parents usually used to restrict her in using the PC, and among many other stuff.
In my point of view, No parents should restrict their childs or daughters on using the internet, as internet provide users with universal access to information and there are more and more e-services and commerce which is done online.
Tell me something which is not on the internet yet!
I have also known about countries blocking internet materials to citizens (China Blocking Facebook)
Because of the open nature of Facebook, several countries have banned access to it including Syria,China,Iran,Vietnam,
Africa and Middle East (Wikipedia)
All these types of Social Networks and media should not be blocked as it will prevent and cause inconvinience to many users communicating through the internet, especially friends which is living in different countries and timezones.
So back to my friend, as much as the parents tried to stop the daughter from using the computer, the harder she tried to gain access to it. The reason why I came to know about it was, she was actually pleading for help when her parents had a password on the computer and the parents said nothing about it.
I obviously managed to bypass the encryption the parents had done to the computer and tried many other ways to assist into ‘cracking the password code’.
However, years passed and the parents seemed to be more well informed about the internet and how technologies is meant to be ‘open’ and ‘easily accessible’. The parents has been really easy with her accessing the internet on the computer and the parents bought her a laptop.
A few days ago, we finally kept in touch and she actually told me that the computer is actually pretty boring now and there is nothing much to do on it anyway.
So as time changes, demands changes and once a wish has been fulfilled, many wishes for greater things will pop up in a matter of time.
That in turn, will create an economy of people, buying and selling goods and trading of items with one common goal – to possess more materials.
