|The Center of Continuous Education (CCE) at the Australian College of Kuwait (ACK) held a ceremony to honor the students who participated in the first ever Junior Engineers Camp.
The Junior Engineers Camp was organized by the CCE in collaboration with the School of Engineering as a part of its efforts to help the youth of Kuwait to reach their full potentials. The camp gave high school students, aged 14 and up, an opportunity to learn more about engineering at ACK in the period of ten days.At the camp, students were taught how to conduct experiments and were also taught about important safety aspects of lab work. The focus of the experiments was on the four engineering majors offered by ACK; Electrical, Mechanical, Civil, and Petroleum.
The students who took part in the camp described the experience as valuable, fun, and a great way to learn during summer break.
“The camp was very beneficial, it gave us an excellent opportunity to learn more things and to explore our options.” said Noor Basel Al Obaid, one of the students at the camp. “You can rarely find something academic for teens in Kuwait, and I think it was a great initiative from ACK to provide us with this opportunity. I appreciate that they recognize the youth and their needs.”
The students worked well with the instructors which ensured the success of the camp. Dr. Michel Nahas, Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at ACK commented: “I personally enjoyed teaching them. They were very enthusiastic and attentive to our instructions. The students worked well together as they explored the four engineering majors.”
ACK would like to thank all the parents along with the Junior Engineers who challenged themselves in this camp and proved their abilities.
