Most of us know and remember the experience of playing with LEGO, but can LEGO bricks be used to facilitate experiential learning? Using LEGO bricks, we will play out scenarios, see how they affect team dynamics and develop a deeper and broader understanding of team-building and leadership skills. As we work through the instructions, challenges and building activities, we learn how activities with LEGO bricks can help in self-discovery, leadership and team development. Come and uncover fun and meaningful experiences through hands-on activities with LEGO. After the activity, participants will also get to understand the design thinking and challenges of the SUSS Experiential Teambuilding programme, mandated for the first year students.

"There are tourists, and there are tourists". There are those who come to see Singapore's skyline, popular tourist attractions, eat satay and chicken rice, buy Merlion souvenirs and take lots of photos. Then, there are those who come to learn and know about Singapore – what makes Singapore a global nation; a multiracial, multireligious and multilingual metropolis; a microcosm of the real world. We invite you to walk through a thoughtful process in designing an inbound (Singapore Visit) programme and to experience, understand, articulate and apply design principles. Join us in a group-based activity to brainstorm, formulate and design an inbound programme based on your group's objective and theme for the programme.
