Two virtual reality modules are being developed during this Innovation Lab: the first module gives students a full overview of the conventional Singapore water supply system from rainwater collection, to reservoir, to storage tank. The second module helps them explore the process and maintenance of rooftop water tanks.

"We have been inspired to create something amazing. It has been a crash course in everything, but the bulk of our learning challenges have been overcome and we are now ready to see what we can really achieve..." 

– Michael Christensen (Canada), Innovation Lab intern
