The Qatar Scientific Club is to launch the Virtual Innovation Lab programme for school students during the second semester mid-term holiday for public schools, which runs from March 14 to 18.
The programme aims to invest students' leisure time and to make them practise a valuable educational experience through workshops and projects that depend on the STEM principle in robotics, artificial intelligence, software, 3D engineering design and scientific experiments.
On the nature of the activity, the Director of the Promising Innovator Center who is responsible for the Virtual Innovation Lab programme, Fatima al-Mohannadi, explained that the programme will be through distance education.
