The season 6 finalists of Stars of Science – the Arab world’s first and foremost ‘edutainment’ reality television program – visited Qatar Academy to talk about their inventions and share ideas with the Primary School pupils.
Science and innovation are fundamental to a country’s economic development; a fact that Qatar is well aware of. Taking a proactive approach to its future meant that the country foresaw a time when the world would shift its focus and become less reliant on oil and carbon resources.
The candidates originate from nine Arab countries in the Middle East and North Africa region. Their projects address issues in a broad range of fields including solar energy, mobile phone technology, personal health and sport.
