QCRI Opens Registration for Creative Space Summer Camp

20 Jul 2022

School students will learn cutting-edge computing skills in an engaging, hands-on learning environment

Students will develop their coding and computational thinking skills

Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI), part of Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU), will once again offer an innovative computing learning experience to primary and middle school students at its annual Creative Space Summer Camp, now open for registration. 

Kicking off on July 31, the two-week program will explore a variety of technological opportunities, including robotics, programming, web design, and other areas of computational thinking. 

Through a combination of interactive lessons, collaboration, and independent project work, the Summer Camp will instill the skills that students need to pursue future careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). QCRI faculty will be on hand to mentor students while teaching the most in-demand computing skills, bringing the collaborative, innovative Creative Space learning culture to life. 

Collaborative activities will ensure a positive and impactful learning environment, helping students to develop their problem-solving and decision-making abilities, as well as become more innovative. Students will get to learn as well as create during the program, with the opportunity to apply their learning by building a mini project of their own. 

Dr. Eman Fituri, Director of Educational Initiatives at QCRI, said: “Our Creative Space Summer Camp offers a rich learning environment with an atmosphere conducive to exploring the creative process that is part of coding and design. Students will get to develop their coding and computational thinking skills and inspire their creativity and innovation. By giving them a fun summer learning experience, we hope to give them a head start in computing areas that have limitless applications for the future.”

The summer program will be conducted at QCRI’s Creative Space Lab, at the HBKU Research Complex in Education City. Previous experience of coding is not required. 

With limited places, early registration is strongly encouraged. For more details and to register, please visit https://creativespace.qcri.org/
