Muscat Daily - - NATION -

Mus­cat – Three Omani stu­dents rep­re­sented the sul­tanate in the Fall­ing Walls Con­fer­ence held in Ber­lin re­cently.

Salim Ab­dul­lah al Kabi, Khadija al Zad­jaliya and Basma al Kiy­oomiya pre­sented their in­no­va­tive projects and in­ter­acted with some of world’s most prom­i­nent sci­en­tists who pre­sented their break­through re­searches. Each pre­sen­ta­tion was for around 15 min­utes, stated a press re­lease.

Kabi’s project was ti­tled, ‘Omani Frank­in­cense and its role in the man­u­fac­tur­ing of var­nish and paints’; Khadija pre­sented her project, ‘High am­bi­ent tem­per­a­ture by a jacket’, and Basma’s project was on ‘Organic com­pounds from wa­ter’.

Com­pet­ing with around 100 con­tes­tants from 80 coun­tries, the three pre­sented their in­no­va­tive ideas be­fore a jury com­pris­ing 13 judges.

“My sci­en­tific idea was de­sign­ing a jacket that will help work­ers work­ing un­der high tem­per­a­ture work con­di­tions,” Khadija said.

She added, “Par­tic­i­pa­tion in such events en­hances our po­si­tion among the world’s coun­tries and shows the am­bi­tious thoughts of Omani youth un­der the lead­er­ship of His Majesty Sul­tan Qa­boos bin Said.”

The three made it to Ber­lin af­ter com­pet­ing with 22 other projects in the fi­nal stage of the Fall­ing Walls Lab Oman Com­pe­ti­tion at the Sul­tan Qa­boos Grand Mosque.
