To the future and beyond
Group 10-20

About us:

We are students from Hwa Chong Institution Singapore. This is an online portfolio made by the 4 of us for our Future Trends IS project. Our group consists of four members, our group leader is Du Lingyu (9) from class 1P1. The other group members are Gan Zhi Xuan (11) from class 1P1 , Wong Li Jie (28) from class 1P1 and Yeo Tze Zhuan (Yang Zhi Quan) (31) from class 1P1.


Water and electricity are very precious and important resources. Imagine if you were to live in a place with no lights, no water to drink, no mobile phones and no computers. How would we be able to continue with our lives? Thus, we need to start saving water and electricity . Although 78% of the world is covered with water, only 2% is drinkable and most of it is trapped in icebergs. Electricity is produced from fossil fuels. However, fossil fuels are limited and are running out . Fossil fuels also take million of years to form.This supports the notion that we need to start saving water and electricity before it runs out and it is too late . We want to educate and engage Singaporeans to play their part and save water and electricity. We want to teach them how to save water and electricity in their households everyday . Even through doing little things like using the fan instead of the air-conditioner, when they are done frequently, we will actually be able to save much water and electricity. We will also want to teach then fun facts about saving water and electricity. We can also help then save money through saving water and electricity. They also can have much fun in playing our board game.


We are thus going to do a board game to educate Singaporeans to save water and electricity. This board game will teach Singaporeans why and how do we save water and electricity and they will gain a lot of knowledge on saving water and electricity. This board game is targeted at the general public and it hopes to instill values like teamwork, respect and also the importance of saving water and electricity.


We carried out a survey for Singaporeans between the ages 12 to 45 , we received about 190 respondents and after some research online and on NEA and PUB websites , we realized that we needed to raise awareness of saving water and electricity.Singaporeans were using more and more electricity and water every year despite the electricity and water shortages around the world. We found out that many Singaporeans are taking water and electricity for granted and are using it excessively. We also found out that the the Linggui reservoir in Malaysia that is supplying water to Singapore is receiving its all time low in water. Our water contract with Malaysia is about to end too in 2060 . In addition, the government implemented the 30% increase in water prices. We wanted to educate people about saving electricity was because fossil fuels, a non-renewable source of energy, is burnt to produce electricity. These resources are limited and are very limited in the world.They take millions of years to form too. We felt that we needed to spread awareness for this cause and that is why we decided to embark on this project. We wanted to spread awareness and teach people how to do it so that they would be able to apply it to their daily lives and start saving water and electricity

All in all, we believe that this game will benefit people so that they will learn how to save water and electricity and teach them the importance of saving the earth. We hope that everybody can play their part and help in the effort. Also, we hope that this game would be a better platform for families to bond, instead of using phones everyday and not interacting with others. We also hope that through this game, players will learn more about saving water and electricity, and why we should do it.

We have come to the end of the web report. Thank you !
