Riyadh, Enriching Mawhiba (Giftedness) Program, organized by King Abdulaziz and his Companions Foundation for Giftedness and Creativity (Mawhiba), was launched here today in partnership with five Saudi universities, with the aim of transforming 6,000 students from various regions of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia into engineers, doctors and scientists in 23 scientific units to be provided intensively over 21 days. The advanced scientific units of the program were prepared in cooperation with Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY).
These efforts are part of the Foundation's programs offered to students who have been discovered through the national program to reach talented students, which is annually held by Mawhiba in a strategic partnership with the Ministry of Education and allows all public education students across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to register in the program through their schools or directly.
The summer academic enriching program seeks to boost students’ cognitive knowledge, increase efficiency and preparedness, build scientific and practical expertise and challenge students’ abilities and develop their skills.
Mawhiba noted that this summer’s academic enriching program will include scientific and skill aspects, which will contribute to enhancing personal and social skills and acquainting students with the 21st century skills
