RIT Dubai participated in the Think Science Fair this year. Think Science was launched in September 2012 and is an interactive programme aimed at sparking an interest in science among the Emirati youth. Targeted towards young people between the ages of 15 and 24, it aims to inspire, encourage and empower Emirati youth to follow their passion for science with interactive, hands-on activities in the fields of engineering, energy, aviation and other technological industries.
More than 200 projects representing the work of more than 550 Emirati youth are displayed at the Fair, which aims to encourage UAE youth from public and private schools and universities to participate in an innovative national level science competition. The participating projects have been entered in the competition under the guidance of 160 mentors and supervisors from educational institutions across the UAE.
The judging committee for the competition -- made up of more than 52 scientific experts and professors from universities and private corporate entities -- will review and evaluate the projects to determine the winners at a ceremony, which is due to take place on May 25. We will update your on how RIT Dubai’s submitted projects will do as soon as the results are released.
