Alumni GO OUT
The Faculty recently organised quarterly excursions for alumni to rediscover Singapore’s attractions as a new initiative to strengthen the Science alumni network.
On 10 June, close to 40 science alumni visited the St John’s Island National Marine Laboratory (SJINML) where they learnt about marine conservation efforts, as well as the island’s history and biodiversity from Mr CHUA Sek Chuan, SJINML Outreach and Education Senior Manager and. Many new friendships were forged as the alumni interacted with each other during the facility tour and nature walk.
Chemistry alumnus TEE Pok Siang said, “The tour was insightful, with detailed explanations on the exhibits and research done by the institute.”
On 7 October, the Peranakan Museum, the first museum of its kind in the world to showcase Peranakan artefacts, hosted more than 20 science alumni for an afternoon of Peranakan culture and tradition.
Museum docent Mr Thomas PREMOJ guided the tour and gave greater insights on Peranakan history. Ending on a sweet note, alumni also tasted some traditional Peranakan kueh-kueh and snacks.
