Engaging Schools and Educators
Talks and Assemblies
Observatory scientists are keen on engaging the students in current issues such as sea-level rise and climate change, or even sharing their knowledge on the geology of Singapore through talks or assemblies.

GeoConnect & Teachers’ Conference
Events such as GeoConnect and Teachers’ Conference provided excellent opportunities for reaching out and sharing our work with geography teachers. At GeoConnect 2019, we were able to share educational materials we have developed like
Earth Girl: Volcano and the Dynamic Earth Games.
This year, climate expert Professor Benjamin Horton from the Observatory gave a talk on sea-level rise at the Teachers’ Conference, organised by the Ministry of Education. He shared
with attendees the reality of rising sea levels and its threat to Singapore’s sovereignty. Stressing the importance of leading by example, he hopes that Singapore would become a carbon-neutral nation and that the contribution of the country
would result in a butterfly effect globally.
