About the Event
The Maritime Experiential Programme, organised exclusively for secondary school students, aims to raise awareness and instil interest in students to consider a maritime education or career by immersing them through learning journeys to maritime related places in Singapore. Three sessions were held during the May installation with over 150 Secondary School students and teachers from 4 institutions. They were brought on educational tours to various shipyards and port terminals and through these tours, students were given the rare opportunity to witness the maritime operations up close and personal.
