Held under the theme ‘A Future as Big as Your Imagination,’ the 6th edition of SCB is encouraging children to become inventors for the future by drawing up ingenious, practical invention ideas that could save lives, help people, or simply entertain.
The workshops were conducted at various locations, including the Apple Store in Dubai Mall, the Knowledge and Human Development Authority in Dubai and Abu Dhabi Art, and saw active participation from children who came up with fun and practical invention ideas.
