Today concluded a gruelling three days of intense comeptition for Trailblazers. We participated in the Future Problem Solving Programme competition, in the Team Community Problem Solving section, held in Raffles Girls’ School (Secondary).
Trailblazers arrived on Thursday (19/11/09) for the set-up of our booth, showcasing posters about our project, a scrapbook, a video, a 3-dimensional map of our Nature Adventure Walk, teaching materials and publicity materials such as postcards of a map of the Wallace Education Centre, badges, t-shirts, namecards and calendars.
On Friday (20/11/09), we had an interview with the evaluators, telling them more about our project and showcasing our scrapbook and our display. Finally, on Saturday (21/11/09), there was a CmPS fair where the public visited our booths. Trailblazers managed to sell our project to the public, and gave away calendars, namecards, and also managed to get the contact details of many primary school teachers and children.
Lastly, the results of the CmPS National Finals were announced. We are proud to announce that Trailblazers has clinched the second prize for the CmPS Middle Division category, and will be representing Singapore in the International Conference next year in Wisconsin.
