Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

The Ibtikar Al-Kuwait Ini­tia­tive for stu­dents re­searches and projects con­cluded train­ing cour­ses or­ga­nized by Al-Saad Train­ing Cen­ter of the Al-Saad Foun­da­tion for Knowl­edge and Sci­en­tific Re­search. The cour­ses were con­ducted in co­op­er­a­tion with the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion, and with great sup­port from the Kuwait Foun­da­tion for the Ad­vance­ment of Sci­ences.

The cour­ses, which were car­ried out for fe­male teach­ers of pri­mary, mid­dle and high schools, re­flect the ini­tia­tive's mes­sage that tar­gets cre­at­ing a mindful so­ci­ety that takes part in the state's de­vel­op­ment process, said Sheikha Fadiya Saad Al-Ab­dul­lah Al-Sabah, the foun­da­tion's chair­per­son of the board. She fur­ther high­lighted the im­por­tance of train­ing as a tool to em­power women and im­prove their com­pre­hen­sive de­ci­sion mak­ing abil­i­ties.

Mean­while, Dr Fa­tima Al-Hashim, Gen­eral Di­rec­tor of the Ibtikar Al-Kuwait Ini­tia­tive said that the train­ing cour­ses fo­cused on the elec­tronic waste re­cy­cling method­ol­ogy, which is con­sid­ered one of the most re­cent meth­ods used in en­vi­ron­ment pro­tec­tion. The event also in­cluded com­pe­ti­tions on how to in­te­grate be­tween sci­ence, math­e­mat­ics, en­gi­neer­ing and tech­nol­ogy, as well as a com­pe­ti­tion for the pri­mary stage that fo­cused on sci­ence fic­tion sto­ries, which were pre­sented by Dr Ali Ashour Jaa­far from Kuwait Univer­sity.

A del­e­ga­tion from the American Univer­sity in Beirut at­tended the clos­ing cer­e­mony. The Ibtikar Al-Kuwait Ini­tia­tive was es­tab­lished in 1999 and ex­panded its ac­tiv­i­ties to cover the Gulf Co­op­er­a­tion Coun­cil (GCC) states in 2011.
