ITE and Science Centre Singapore to work together on exhibits, internships

Visitors to the Science Centre Singapore will now get the chance to view exhibits created by Institute of Technical Education (ITE) students. This collaboration was made possible through a three-year memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed between the two organisations on Friday afternoon.

Students from the ITE will have internship opportunities at the Science Centre while the Science Centre will have a chance to tap on the ideas of students for their exhibitions and events.

A part of the west entrance has been specifically set aside for ITE students to exhibit their work annually as part of the agreement. These students will also remain on site to explain their projects to the public.

Said chief executive of ITE, Bruce Poh: "Students, especially those from the field of animation and information systems, will gain the opportunity to do industry attachments with the Science Centre. I think this will aid them greatly, not just in terms of knowledge, but also in helping to prepare them for working life."
