Snow City: The Learning Experience

 

I hear & I forget. I see & I understand. I experience & I remember.

Snow City adheres to the above educational mantra. Hence, it developed various educational programmes which cater to both visual and experiential learners and enthusiasts.

Snow City offers educational programmes that are all conceptualized in the context of low temperatures (from -196°C to 0°C). The main goal of the programmes is to foster interest in science through the novel experiences offered by exciting lecture demonstrations and hands-on activities. The programmes provide the students a unique experience that cannot be duplicated in ordinary classrooms. The programmes cater to a wide range of audiences. The Education Officers, who conduct the programmes, can vary the level of the discussion/explanation for each lesson.

Now, you have more variety to choose from with our exciting team-building ‘Winter Olympics’ and enrichment programmes.

All our packages come with a snow play experience and a walk-through the Dino World Ice Gallery, Singapore’s largest Ice Exhibition! Here is the list of carefully planned programmes that focus on learning, fun, and team building.

Speedo Each player from each team will slide down the slope one by one. Every team will be timed. Timing starts at the point when the first player slides down and ends when the last player of the group completes the slide. The team with the fastest time recorded will be the winner.
Breakage Everyone in a team will log his or her arm to form a chain, with different formation, and slide down the slope together. The chain should not break. The team with no breakage will win the game.
The Mad Ball Each player from each team will use his or her mouth to hold a plastic cup, containing a ping pong ball. They will slide down the slope one by one. Once he or she reaches the bottom of the slope, he or she will place the ping pong ball into a big container. Whichever team has the most number of ping pong balls in the big container wins the game.
Balloon Hurray 2 players from each team will hold each other's hands with a balloon in between them. They will slide down the slope together. Upon reaching the bottom of the slope, they will place the balloon into the big container. Whichever team with the most balloons in the big container wins the game.
Musical Chairs Rubber tubes will be arranged in a circular form. The children have to walk round the rubber tubes once the music starts. Once the music stops, they have to quickly sit down on a rubber tube. The one who is unable to find a rubber tube to sit down will be penalized once. He or she is given up to 3 chances. If he or she is penalized thrice, he or she will have to perform for the rest of the children.
Bursting Balloons Each player from each team will slide down one by one. Once he or she reaches the bottom of the slope, he or she will have to burst a balloon with both hands. Only when he or she has burst the balloon, will the next player able to slide down and repeat the process. There is a time limit of 10 mins. The team, which is able to burst the most balloons within the time limit, wins the game.

Several items will be given to the other team players, which are the hat, jacket, waterproof pants, ski boots, ski and poles. They will then slide down one by one, carrying one item at a time, and dress up the player standing at the bottom of the slope. The objective is to dress him or her up as a skier. The team, which finishes first, wins the game.
