KUWAIT, Jan 31 (KUNA) — Kuwait has benefited substantially from the Second Gulf Forum on Nano technology which was held in Oman, MILSET (Asia), the International Movement for Leisure Activities in Science and Technology Office Director Adnan Al-Meer said on Sunday.
Al-Meer told KUNA that Kuwait has become aware of “all latest developments in Nano technology” as a result of its participation in that forum, adding Kuwait was keen to participate with Gulf experts in the field, in an effort to bolster development and innovation for the society, in general.
Meanwhile, Bushra Al-Bahr, a participant in the forum and Computer Science instructor from Kuwait Ministry of Education, said Kuwait participated in the forum, with presentations on role of Nano technology in scientific research, promotion of education and awareness of this technology.
The Kuwaiti presentation about Nano’s role in research was addressed by professor Ali Abo Mejdad, who particularly shed light on students’ abstention from specializing in sciences, such as chemistry, physics and biology.
He suggested application of a special program for elementary-level students to help them absorb scientific knowledge, with usage of the IPad. The experience ha already drawn substantial applause from Arab and international quarters.
Established on July 1987, Milset Asia aims at establishing coordination among organizations in the field of scientific and technological hobbies for the benefit of youth. (end) zak.mb
