For the second year in a row, Qatar National Library is organising a summer camp for the 12-18 age group from July 23 to August 11, featuring a variety of educational, cultural and recreational activities, local Arabic daily Arrayah reported.
The activities will start with the 'How to Become a Scientist' workshop during which the participants explore many scientific experiments, and learn how to perform them. On July 25, the 'Learning to Design on Canva' will demonstrate the making of printed designs, such as invitation cards, advertisements or logo design. This workshop will be presented by Sarah Aref, a journalism student with Northwestern University in Qatar.
On July 27, QNL, in partnership with the Qatar Centre for Career Development, will present a lecture on 'The Career Guidance Book Club' to discuss the most famous books that allow participants to think about their future plans. The first session will be with the book 'Who Moved My Cheese' by Spencer Johnson. At the Robotics workshop on July 30, participants will learn a range of different hands-on activities for building robots.
On August 2, the camp activities will continue with a workshop featuring an interactive discussion session titled 'Start, Change, Enjoy.' The book 'Be Red Tea' will be highlighted in the presence of its author, Dr Muhammad Hussein al-Anazi, who is to give a presentation on a new way to build a strong self. Through this session and the accompanying mental activities, participants will learn about smart points in the art of dealing with life and ways to change for the better, through three steps: start, change, enjoy.
From August 6 to 10, the camp will hold a 'Little Engineers' workshop, which sheds light on electrical engineering to prepare future engineers and provide them with the information required to understand the scientific principles of electricity in our lives and how to use it in various applications. The workshop is divided into three sessions, each with a unique topic related to a field of electrical engineering.
The camp activities will conclude on August 11 with the 'Young People’s Art and Creativity' workshop, which will provide participants with a wide space for creativity to make distinctive pieces of art.
