Students in Qatraneh learn how to use electronics kits October 11, 2011

The Noor Al Hussein Foundation (NHF) has embarked on a series of training courses and extracurricular workshops with teachers and students between the ages of 12-and-15 as part of its Poverty Pockets Empowerment Program.

NHF is working collaboratively with the Jubilee Center for Excellence in Education (JCEE) to conduct workshops which encourage the use of hands-on training in robotics, math, and electronics with specialized kits which provide the students with a stimulating, interactive learning environment.

These activities will hopefully inspire students to explore new fields of study in the future, enabling them to become more competitive in the global market.

NHF and the JCEE are now in the process of distributing the kits to eight schools in Ein Al Basha, Northern Jordan Valley, Mafraq and Qatraneh in order to equip teachers and students with tools and curricula that will enable them to apply what they have learned during the 15 workshops held over the past three months.

Each school will receive three kits: one for robotics, one for electronics, and one for the Math and Chess Program.The students will be able to take turns using the materials contained in the kits as part of their extracurricular activities at the schools.

Two hundred students and more than 70 teachers have already benefitted from training workshops held in advance of the distribution campaign which kicks off this week and continues through the end of December. In addition there will be five more training workshops held next month.

The NHF and the JCCE hope that engaging students in math, robotics and electronics in a more creative environment will also encourage increased student participation in organized national competitions.
