SCIENTIA WINTER CAMP -2019
Science explores nature and the most authentic way of introducing science to the students is to create a learning environment and let children make their own discoveries as real scientists. Science Education Centre, Doha conducted its first-ever winter camp during Dec 2019 for the 5 to 14 year olds.
It was termed as 'Scientia' as it means Knowledge. The camp’s scientific activities were headed by Mr Manoj from Kerala, who had received the best Science teacher award from the President of India a couple of years ago. Several scientific experiments related to daily activities were undertaken to encourage the students to think out of the box and have a closer look at the science. Apart from scientific related activities, the students were also engaged in different aspects like yoga, Kalari, craftwork and personality development programmes by experts from the Science Education Centre. This enthused a lot of joy and happiness among the students. A field trip to Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani Museum was organised during the closing stages of the camp that gave the students an insight into the culture and traditional values of Qatar.
Science Education Centre organised an inter-school painting competition to commemorate the National Day of Qatar in December 2019. A large number of students, which also included other nationalities, participated in this mega competition and made it a grand success. The topic given was Qatar and the students portrayed their skills in bringing out the varied culture of the country including its flora and fauna. Eminent artists from the city were invited to judge the 200 plus paintings and drawings.
