Week 21: Go Green Singapore Poly 2023
On Wednesday, July 5th, Singapore Polytechnic will be hosting its annual Go Green Day. This event entails a Go Green exhibition, which brings together numerous industrial partners and student groups. To add prestige to the occasion, we have extended invitations to esteemed guests, including our senior minister, Dr. Amy Khor (Ministry for Sustainability and the Environment), who will participate in a discussion panel. Recognizing the significance of this event, our department has decided to actively support it.
In preparation for Go Green Day, our team held its initial in-person meeting on the afternoon of June 29th. During this meeting, we made a commitment to construct a scaled-down version of a colorful whale, in exchange for a booth space for the LIBFL (Library & FabLab) upcycled project.
During the meeting, three of us attended to discuss the various requests received. Among those requests, I took on the responsibility of overseeing the construction of the interactive whale, which involved engaging student makers in the process. However, I soon realized that the rest of the team was already occupied with their own tasks. Furthermore, one team member had a pre-planned long weekend ahead, while the following Thursday was a public holiday, creating another extended break.
Nonetheless, fueled by our collaborative spirit, we managed to successfully complete the project, delivering the whale with its interactive elements, and putting on an impressive display at the event. We captured several photos and videos before and during the event to document our achievement.
