Students from grades 7–9 design, prototype and build a craft capable of cleaning up Qatar’s vast coastline. It must be able to move along land and water, and pick up debris that has washed up on our pristine beaches. The basics of the design process will be tackled, along with learning topics such as lift, thrust, weight distribution and 3D modeling.

Qatar Invents is an exciting program in which participants learn the fundamentals of the engineering design process: empathize, define, ideate, prototype, and test. Students from grades 9–12 will be tasked with coming up with novel solutions to serious problems, building prototypes, and successfully defending their inventions to a panel of experts.

Engineering Heroes: Qatar Special Investigators is designed to demonstrate that engineering is essential in all aspects of life, participants in grades 9–12 will learn how engineering is used in a variety of careers centered on the heroes of daily life. Past themes included the use of drone technology with members of Qatar’s military, and the science and engineering behind crime scene analysis with Qatar’s investigators with the General Directorate of Criminal Investigation.

A massive summer program where grade 9-11 students spend several weeks designing and building a focused engineering project. Previous programs included 3D printing, wireless electronics and aeronautical engineering.

Our most competitive program! Top grade-11 students compete in completing an actual research project under the mentorship of Texas A&M University at Qatar professors and researchers for three weeks. Working in the university laboratories, students learn complex aspects of petroleum, chemical, mechanical, electrical and computer engineering. At the end of their program, they present their research to a panel of academic and industry experts. Successful participants are considered our National Vision Scholars.
