The British Embassy, in cooperation with the National Space Science Agency and Clever Play, organized the Science Day event, which aims to attract and educate the future generation from 3 to 14 years old about various future sciences. The Agency’s participation in this event comes to achieve its desired objectives in spreading awareness about the importance of space science among young people and youth because of its great importance.
During its participation, DEWA presented 7 educational and educational programs designed specifically to suit children aged 3 to 14 years, as it works to stimulate and encourage the skill of creative and analytical thinking and problem solving, which has been well received by many children and parents.
