Supporting STEM

by Eddie Rayner

Dubai Science Park (DSP), a holistic science-focused business community, hosted a Science Fun Day in partnership with Foremarke School, a British preparatory school in Dubai.

The event aligned with DSP’s mission to raise public awareness about the importance of science and enhance its appeal among young people. Promoting science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) is also a key priority for the UAE government, which has stepped up its support for STEM and innovation education across the country in recent years. STEM education encourages children to think in a more integrated and holistic way, whilst building enthusiasm and exposing them to some of the most in-demand industries of the future.

Zoe Woolley, Headmistress at Foremarke School, said: “The event was all about families coming together to have fun by engaging in a range of interactive sports activities, while experiencing science-focused demonstrations. Our teaching staff were delighted to showcase some entertaining experiments which both children and parents loved. We are a school dedicated to progressing the STEM agenda – encouraging enthusiasm amongst children for science and STEM subjects was the aim of the day, as well as motivating families to get fit and healthy.”
