Ben Tang – Home Lab! Test for sugars and Proteins at home (Workshop)

Many tests and demos in secondary school Chemistry and Biology may actually be performed at home with commonly available substances. Not only are these within the syllabus, but they allow students to feel that Chem and Bio are accessible to them in everyday life beyond the confines of the school lab. This opens the way for a new generation of citizen scientists and makers.

Chris Long  – The Beanstalk Creative Actions Pte Ltd (Booth, Presentation)

MakanKaki135™: It’s makan (Singlish for “meal”) time.  Do you have a “chope” weapon?  What is your favourite?  A tissue pack?  An umbrella?  A book?

MakanKaki135™ is the ultimate multi-functional meal-time “chope” weapon of choice.

What it does:

  • serves as a hard case for your tissue pack – thus preventing untidy, crushed and crumpled tissue packs in your bag
  • serves as a holder for your cutleries, conveniently and elegantly housing a Western spoon and fork set or an Asian spoon and chopstick set
  • helps maintain hygiene by preventing contact of your cutleries with dirty tables and/or trays
  • “chope” aka reserves your seat while elegantly setting your table with your cutlerie

Ground Up Initiative (Booth)

Welcome to GUI – the Ground-Up Initiative, a not-for-profit organisation located in Singapore. We began as a small group of people bound by the desire to be the change we want to create. Born in Singapore, a tiny, prosperous and highly urbanized nation, many Singaporeans grow up thinking success is largely defined by the scales of money. However, as our material wellbeing improves by leaps and bounds, it threatens to overshadow our spiritual wellbeing and we begin to realize that money is no guarantee of happiness or fulfillment in our lives. We are here today to search for those answers, to ask: how can people living within urban landscapes adopt a social and ecological harmony with the earth?
