THE PROJECT

The President’s Trail is a part of mySG Trails and Exhibitions – a series of heritage trails designed, developed and implemented by students – launched by MOE. The aim is for students to “craft their own understanding of the Singapore Story”.

THE RESULT

This trail is the first school-planned, person-based heritage trail to be launched. The trail consists of 7 hotspots – one for each President. Miss Wee Eng Hwa, daughter of the late President Wee Kim Wee attended the preview tour and had this to say –
“It gives people a sense of history, and people with a sense of history are able to withstand whatever odds they face.”.

Other attendees such as Sherlyn Lim, a Sec 3 student from YISS, has learnt much from this trail, mentioning that –
“ I never knew Dr Wee Kim Wee was modest and selfless. It was inspiring.”

OUR SOLUTION

Using our Pocket Trips™ platform, students were able to create hotspots that triggered informative and interactive content with our Image Recognition technology without any programming knowledge.

Pocket Trips™ gives students the avenue to put what they have learnt about our history to good use. Now students can leave a lasting impact on the public by creating a mobile trail that brings out the significant episodes of our shared past.
