Metalworks Team goes on an Excursion

Singapore  On 12 February, the Metalworks team embarked on a day trip to visit various research institutions in Singapore. The purpose was to connect with Institutes of Higher Learning and seek opportunities to collaborate and hire bright interns for the Metalworks team. We decided to invite 2 of Singapore's top data visualisers, Yin Shanyang from Swarm (http://www.swarm.is/) & Alvin Chua from purest-form.com (http://www.purest-form.com/), along to share some of their work and experiences during the breaks we had in between stops. A few members of the Maxus Singapore team also joined us for parts of the tour.

The places we visited were:

- Future Cities Lab | Home | Future Cities Laboratory

- SUTD: Singapore University of Technology and Design | Home | SUTD Singapore University of Technology and Design

- SMART: Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology | SMART: Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology

- National Museum of Singapore | National Museum of Singapore
