Discovering Singapore's Natural History and Heritage
Dr Joelle Lai
This multidisciplinary module traces the natural history of Singapore and the region via the Spice Trade, European colonialism and independence. The founding of the Botanic Gardens and LKCNHM are set in this historical context. This module explores the value of science and biodiversity research in the region. Students will apply and share this knowledge with the wider community by conceptualising an educational tour of LKCNHM, and help inspire a new found commitment to the natural world amongst urban Singaporeans.
