Saturday Snapshot- 23/07/2016

Hey everyone! It's time for another Saturday Snapshot, and this week I'll be sharing some more pictures of my trip to Singapore. These are some snaps of my "tourist detour". I visited the URA, or the Urban Redevelopment Authority in Singapore. My cousin encouraged me to go after having visited the place on a field trip.
 This government office is open to the public, and they are able to view all the changes that will be made to the country over the next ten years. Among other things, there are games that help kids understand how hard planning is, a wall that takes us back in time and a 3-D map of the country. Let's get started!
 I was really impressed with the whole concept of the URA. It's proof to the citizens that change is going to happen, and it gives the room to move themselves out of or into an area, and also allows them to plan efficiently for the future.

What the country currently looks like. This map is less detailed, so it looks sparser. This picture shows a close up of land that the government wishes to develop.


Enjoy your weekend!

    1. It was, my cousin and I tried some of the school resource games... they were a bit childish but they certainly taught us things.
