The Gulf Today - - HOME/WORLD - BY A STAFF RE­PORTER

SHAR­JAH: In prepa­ra­tion for its sixth edi­tion, Shar­jah Chil­dren Bi­en­nial (SCB) con­cluded 20 work­shops na­tion-wide that en­abled chil­dren be­tween the ages of 6 and 18 to share and present their artis­tic and in­no­va­tive in­ven­tion ideas, in­spired from real life and their imag­i­na­tions.

Among the ideas sub­mit­ted dur­ing the work­shops was a dig­i­tal purse that can only be un­locked via in­ger­print recog­ni­tion, WHICH Could re­solve one of to­day’s biggest se­cu­rity is­sues. Another in­no­va­tive idea was a dig­i­tal pen that not only writes on its own, but also stores ev­ery word it has writ­ten.

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.
