We are the only natural history museum in Singapore, and have the largest collection of animal specimens. Therefore, we offer unique specimen-based programmes where participants have the opportunity to examine and learn about biodiversity using a variety of specimens.
All workshops will be conducted at the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum. Guided walks will be conducted at the respective venues.
Materials provided vary according to the type of programme. All materials are developed with consultation and feedback from museum curators and staff. Materials used have also been regularly refined based on feedback from our experience of working with various schools over the past 10 years. Kindly contact us to enquire on materials for specific programmes.
A minimum of 20 specimens will be used per workshop. All students will get to handle the specimens as the class will be split into smaller groups to examine specimens. All specimens used in workshops have been specially prepared to be safe for handling.
All facilitators and instructors are graduates with at least a Bachelor’s degree in Biology, Life Sciences or Zoology, and have been trained to conduct the workshops and walks. Our facilitator to student ratio is 1:20.
