Hundreds of young Arab innovation hopefuls will present their ideas for sustainable technology solutions to their peers, established innovators and an expert jury on Friday as they aim to win the chance to be part of Season 11 of Stars of Science, Qatar Foundation’s edutainment TV initiative.
Audiences are invited to tune in and find out who will succeed in impressing the panel and join the quest to find the next top Arab innovator, QF has said in a press statement.
“Viewers can expect to experience thrilling reality television that holds a strong educational component,” said Khalid al-Jumaily, the host of Stars of Science.
“Having been involved with the show since its inception, I see this season as an exceptional one given the format development that aims at meeting viewers’ expectations. This season, we will continue to witness the high level of Arab talent portrayed and watch our region’s technological capabilities evolve first-hand.”
Fans who have been following Stars of Science since its debut season in 2009 will notice that the show has an all-new format this year, focusing on sustainability and collaboration.
This includes changes to its casting episodes that encourage absorbing discussions on scientific advances and an exchange of knowledge between the competitors, the statement notes.
In the initial three-part casting stage, more than 150 aspiring innovators will pitch their concepts in front of the jury, supported by Stars of Science alumni, and compete to win a spot among the final eight contestants.
Stars of Science will air its first episode on Qatar Television at 10pm on Friday, with a re-run on Saturday at 5pm.
The show will air weekly until November 8 on seven channels across the region and online.
