On 6 March 2010, PCF (PAP Community Foundation) officially
launched two of their centres to integrate the use of LEGO
in their curriculum with the support of LEGO Education

I am very happy to be commissioned by PCF to design and
construct two signboards to mark the inauguration.

The signboard for Marine Parade Education Centre is about
295cm x 59cm in size (using 2694 elements) while the one
for Chua Chu Kang Education Centre measures around 262cm
x 59cm (using 2268 elements).

Two pieces of memento were also commissioned for the two
guests of honour Mr Goh Chok Tong (Senior Minister) and
Mr Gan Kim Yong (Minister for Manpower).

These two pieces of memento were created to be stud-less
and in desktop sizes. SNOT (studs-not-on-top) techniques
were used in crafting the mementos, including the coloured
text on it.

Artist Side Notes: It's fantastic to see the use of LEGO
as teaching materials in this pilot programme for the
two kindergartens. Together with the six LEGO Denmark
trained PCF teachers, I believe these pre-schoolers would
have a great head start to learning creativity, building
and teamwork.

Special thanks to;
