The initiative is in line with the UAE’s vision to build Emirati technical and intellectual capabilities in the fields of aerospace and space exploration and to enter the space industry.
The programme will feature a series of workshops moderated by space science experts and a few others dedicated to observing natural astronomy. It will also include site visits to different space centres in the UAE.
“Through this programme, Sajaya Young Ladies seeks to strengthen the UAE’s efforts in building a generation of space scientists and give them access to knowledge and skills that will empower them to explore space. It also reflects our dedication to meeting the needs and aspiration of our young women who long to develop their capabilities, learn new sciences and enter new academic fields that ensure successful professional careers in the future,” said Shaikha Aisha Al Qasimi, director of Sajaya.
The Sajaya Young Ladies of Sharjah is dedicated to developing the talents of girls aged 13 to 18 years in all creative spheres.
The organisation was established in 2004 under the umbrella of Sharjah Children’s Centres and became an independent entity in 2012.
