Dubai Astronomy Group participates in ThinkScience Fair 2014

From April 20 – 22, Dubai Astronomy Group, in collaboration with ICT Fund and TRA, participated in ThinkScience Fair 2014 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. With the aim to promote astronomy among the young students of UAE, Dubai Astronomy Group presented its visitors with the project of Al Marsad, the national observatory of the UAE and the largest of its kind in the Middle East. Complementing the previsulization video of Al Marsad, was a paper model telescope which was hand crafted by one of the enthusiastic student members of DAG. But the highlight of the show was when DAG unveiled the Al Marsad model in augmented reality via an app that could be installed on any android device with a camera.

 ThinkScience Fair is the UAE‘s biggest science innovation showcase event for the budding innovators of UAE.  It also gives young innovators an opportunity to demonstrate their ideas and skills in application of ideas and technology. The program aims to motivate and inspire UAE youth to pursue their curiosity and passion and to investigate solutions that tackle real-world problems
