Expo 2020 is offering educational content around technology innovation for schools in the UAE.
A series of online resources, covering topics including future careers, the circular economy, bioengineering, future cities, energy and future mobility, have been developed as part of the Expo School Programme.
The lesson plans and learning materials have been created in collaboration with volunteer teachers from across the country, and are designed to engage students with the journey to 2020, in line with the country’s educational framework.
A total of 74 UAE-based educators worked with the Expo School Programme to develop lesson plans and learning materials. The free-to-use resources explore topics of the future within the context of Expo 2020 Dubai’s theme, ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, and three key subthemes of Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability.
Six topics have been included so far, and others will be added in the coming months.
Alya Al-Ali, Director – Expo School Programme, Expo 2020 Dubai, said: “We are committed to empowering and inspiring young people, which is why we are so excited to share these engaging learning resources with educators. We hope these materials enable students and teachers in the UAE to build their knowledge and excitement ahead of the next World Expo, allowing them to make the most of the incredible learning opportunities that will be available on their doorstep.
“Special thanks go to all the educators who volunteered their time to develop the learning resources, ensuring they address the needs of teachers looking to explore these exciting topics in their classrooms. We look forward to collaborating with even more educators to create fun, novel and exciting activities for students to enjoy on the journey to 2020 and beyond.”
