Many students view history as a very dry subject. But with the right content in the right context, history can be fascinating and engaging. This is exactly how our new Maritime Discovery Tour educational programme for school groups is designed – to make maritime history captivating for students.
After an extensive 9-month overhaul, the Maritime Experiential Museum is the perfect venue for students to learn about the historical importance of the Maritime Silk Route, and its role in Singapore’s economic success.
During this 60-min guided tour, students will:
- Trace the different routes taken by 4 famous explorers (Zheng He, Marco Polo, Ibn Battuta & Sang Nila Utama)
- Pick up some much needed skills to navigate the high seas (e.g. knot tying, navigation)
- Uncover key historical maritime inventions (e.g. watertight-bulkhead technology of Chinese junks)
- Explore important ports along the Maritime Silk Route and learn about their distinctive features
This educational programme is also suitable for the educator’s Learning Journey.
