Dubai Culture & Arts Authority (Dubai Culture), the Emirate’s dedicated entity for culture, arts, heritage, and literature, announced that Dubai Public Libraries organised a rich programme for its winter camps this year, which went on till December at Al-Twar and Mankhool libraries.
Students enrolled in the programme benefited from 12 distinct activities that were carefully prepared by specialised educators, most important of which were the Engineer Workshop, the Digital Playground ‘Advanced Edition,’ Future Creators ‘Design Thinking,’ Civil Engineering, and Civil Engineering Renewable Energy by using hydrogen as fuel to run projects. Participants interacted with several workshops, including the installation of the robot painter, the innovative programmer, future engineer Robo Engeniz, creative programming, microelectronics, and 3D design and printing, with the last workshop entitled ‘Invented with Electronics – The Small Inventor.’
The Dubai Public Library network includes eight libraries for adults and another seven for children. Some branches feature multi-purpose halls, classrooms, and exhibition spaces, and all branches of the Dubai Public Library are connected via computer systems. This has established close links with other modern libraries, providing access to vast sources of information on a diversity of topics in both Arabic and English.
