Engineering Village not too long ago concluded two educational initiatives, ‘Taroos Visits Oman’ and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programme for teachers and students. Supported by BP Oman, the Taroos initiative aimed at offering thrilling engineering expertise by linking the field of electronics with engineering and mathematics.
The STEM programme focused on diversifying teaching techniques and introducing theoretical science to the every day lives of participants. This programme is a component of a worldwide movement that seeks to adapt modern day teaching techniques primarily based on experiential understanding.
“We are pleased to support both initiatives by Engineering Village as we believe these will help in enhancing Oman’s technological development in the field of education. The Taroos and STEM programmes will equip the Omani youth with the crucial skills and knowledge they require to secure a promising future. Such initiatives drive the creation of a well-educated generation that will contribute to the growth of the sultanate’s economy,” stated Shamsa al Rawahi, BP Oman social investment manager.
Taroos engaged 600 students from across the sultanate in intensive and dynamic workshops, searching for to make engineering ideas fascinating and attractive to students. Two 3-hours workshops have been delivered in each and every governorate. On the other hand, STEM programme targeted 400 students and teachers. It comprised 24 interactive workshops that have been performed all through the year for 3 consecutive days. The teacher-certain workshops have been created to market project-primarily based understanding, whilst the programme focusing on students incorporated workshops that transform tips into games in an work to produce a feasible and enjoyable understanding atmosphere.
“Both initiatives benefitted a great number of students across Oman. These programmes established a platform that helped in bolstering the students’ capabilities, allowing them to excel in their future endeavours,” stated Fahad al Siyabi, chief executive officer of Engineering Village.
