DOHA—A competition for young science students in Qatar has chosen eight students to represent the gulf country at the London International Youth Science Forum this summer.
The forum, set to run from July 27 to August 10, offers a 15-day summer camp in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics to students ages 16 to 21.
During the event, Qatar’s students will engage with other students and mentors from around the world who are equally passionate about science and research.
The opportunity to participate in the forum is a result of the collaboration between Qatar Foundation, Hamad Bin Khalifa University, and the Ministry of Education and Higher Education’s Qatar Youth Science Forum.
The goal of this collaboration is to ensure the well-rounded scientific development of the next generation through its efforts with K-12 and higher education. It also encourages high school students to demonstrate scientific creativity and apply research methods to resolve challenges.
