Yet as adults, a lot of people don’t tend to consider sports as a feasible hobby; between work hours and family activities, there just doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day. However, recreational sports have multiple benefits for adults, just as they do for kids and teens – in fact, adults are likely much more in need of the physical and psychological boosts that playing rec league sports can provide.
The Future Ready Sailor programme is an innovative and experiential learning programme that uses the beauty of sailing to inspire and empower youths. It combines math, physics, biology and new technology (VR, AR, 360 video) in the programme. ⠀
The programme combines lessons (with guest speakers from @waterwayswatchsociety and NUS Marine Lab) on the rich marine biodiversity in our Singapore waters and the importance of sustainability #cleanregattas . The programme culminated in a final session using #AR and #GoogleCardboard with our VR partner @warrior9vr with students making their own expeditions with 360 photos around the National Sailing Center. .
Over the last 12 weeks, we had a batch of students from Bedok South (funded by the National Youth Council @nycsg) experience sailing first hand and understand the theory behind it all. We hope that it was a wonderful experience for all!! ⠀ ⠀ #SailforSG #ItTakesAVillage #MakingWavesTogether #RaisingChampions #FutureReadySailor @ National Sailing Centre ... See MoreSee Less
