ABQ participates in Oman Science Festival
ABQ Education Group is proud to be part of the 2022 Oman Science Festival. After a 2-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the Ministry of Education (MOE) is once again hosting this innovative and informative exhibition at the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre until15 October with the very apt slogan, “With Science, we meet again”.
ABQ Education Group Chief Executive Officer, Mr Humayun Kabir said, “Children today are seeking skills that not only prepare them for formal exams, but also for life after school. They need to develop an inquisitive mind and a compassionate understanding of the world around them, making science an ideal subject to learn. Science education gives students the opportunity to gain a better knowledge of why and how things function. ABQ students are exposed to the wonder of science from a very young age at all three of our international schools.”
Mr Sigve Austheim, ABQ Chief Learning Officer, said, “Science forms an integral part of the foundation of education for all children and this pioneering Festival offers students the ability to access a wealth of knowledge and information inside one venue. Exposing students to science from a young age enhances their curiosity and builds on their natural inclination to seek meaning and understanding of the world.”
He further explained, “ABQ Azzan Bin Qais, ABQ Sohar and ABQ Seeb are shaping the future with their revolutionary approach to learning and in light of a greener tomorrow, we encourage our students to incorporate more recycled and sustainable products in all their initiatives.”
The Science Festival aims to deliver science to students and society in an interactive and creative way. It also encourages students to innovate and create a positive trend towards science, innovation, and scientific research.
The Festival includes more than 450 events. International organisations at 2022 Oman Science Festival include the International Atomic Energy Agency, the World Food Organization (FAO), UNESCO, ISESCO, the University of Glasgow and the Calcio Institute of Technology in Germany, which presents a number of scientific concepts, scientific competitions and workshops, and technological devices and applications in an attractive and enjoyable way for students, teachers and members of society.
