The Faculty regularly organises events to strengthen the Science alumni network.
More than 60 Science alumni attended the Single Mingle workshop on 2 December 2017. The Single Mingle event encourages close interaction amongst participants through various interesting activities.
The leather crafting workshop started off with interactive ice-breaker games, followed by an introduction to leather crafting. Participants were then brought through hands-on leather craftwork activities. Over networking and refreshments, one of the participants, Mr TAN said, “The event was well organised. I am looking forward to more workshops, especially recurring ones!”
This event was co-sponsored by the Social Development Network, an agency offering opportunities for singles to interact in social settings.
