he Institute recently hosted two STEAM Summer School interactive learning activities for children between the ages of eight and eleven. During these activities held at the Projects Office on 4 August 2016, two separate groups of young students carried out simple laboratory experiments designed to introduce them to the basic scientific concepts of taking measurements, recording their findings and interpreting the results. The experiments measured the porosity of sand and looked at classifying different types of soil, and the students greatly enjoyed the hands-on approach.


XjenzaMania’s Sciences, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics (STEAM) Summer School is one of the programmes offered by the Cottonera Resource Centre which was set up to co-ordinate links between the communities of the inner harbour area and the University, for the purposes of resource-transfer and capacity building.  The participation of the Institute of Earth Systems in these activities for young students underlines its commitment to human resources capacity building and demonstrates that no age is too young to start fostering an interest in science!
