Kuwait National English School participated in the Chief Science Officer programme organised by the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences (KFAS)

Two students (Rawan Al Shafei and Retaj Al Shafei) from Kuwait National English School participated in a scientific leadership programme initiated by the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences (KFAS). The training took place at Kuwait University (Shuwaikh Campus). 

During the two days event, Retaj and Rawan participated in the Chief Science Officer (CSO) course. The skills needed to be a scientist and lead research in science were discussed. Scientists use technologies to share research findings and work together with peers around the world. Successful results and findings are organised and published in journals.

Our students were guided on how research ideas are formulated and discussed. Doctors, Engineers, Environmentalists and Technological experts were present on site at Kuwait University to assist and guide our students. A well planned and designed project has a better chance of bringing results and being successful.

The next step is to carry out experiments linked to the research. Rawan and Retaj did some interesting scientific experiments under the supervision of KFAS staff. 

Generally, experimental results are carefully organised and conclusions are drawn. Conclusive experimental findings are published in international journals.

Kuwait National English School would like to take this opportunity to thank KFAS for their commitment towards driving progress in all fields of science and technology and inspiring the culture of development and innovation. We fully support the mission of KFAS in playing a leading role in driving development forward and in making the State of Kuwait a real pioneer in science and technology.
