Global Indian International School (GIIS) is excitedly gearing up towards the launch of Qutuhal, a three-month-long innovation and future-skills learning programme for students in the UAE.
In partnership with Granteq, GIIS has organized a multi-pronged programme complete with workshops, competitions and speaker sessions that will run between October 27th, 2018, and January 26th, 2019, in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
GIIS is a forerunner in the future-skills and STEM-learning movement in the UAE, and Qutuhal is just one more initiative in a strategy to prepare students for a more digital, technology-dependent, automated future.
With a diverse set of workshops and programmes covering Robotics, Space Education, Design Thinking, Drone-making, 3-D Printing, MakerSpace, and other future skills, Qutuhal is designed to stir a healthy sense of curiosity and wonder in every young mind.
Students aged 6-16 can engage in a variety of courses including Code-A-Drone, Invent for Life, Artificial Intelligence, Manufacturing of the Future and Virtual Reality and Robotics, among others. Each programme consists of 12 hours of hands-on learning, with most courses running in two age-divided learning groups.
Qutuhal comes at a time where it supports and can draw support from some key innovation-driven national movements across the UAE. The UAE National Innovation Strategy, for instance, is focused on making STEM-learning more accessible to students, and equipping them with a set of well-honed STEM-based skills for the future.
In a previous Granteq article, we talked about how 2.4 million STEM jobs worldwide are going unfilled today due to the lack of an appropriately-skilled and qualified workforce. Filling that gap is an essential need in order to address and solve ever-mounting global problems. Equipping our future leaders with the tools, the creativity, and the knowledge to create a sustainable, exciting future is key.
“Alongside GIIS, we eagerly anticipate Qutuhal’s launch and look forward to the programme unrolling over the next three months, invoking that eagerness and curiosity to learn, and to start shaping innovative, visionary future leaders,” says Girish Narayan, Managing Director, Granteq.
Qutuhal programmes, workshops, and competitions will be held at GIIS’ Dubai and Abu Dhabi campuses. The programme is open to students across all UAE schools.
