Published

Breaking news hits Riyadh today! It is claimed that Ajyal, the Space Generations Program that is launched by the Saudi Space Commission is set to contribute towards future plans by establishing a national base for human capital in the space sector.

The program’s goal is to encourage those interested in the scientific research and learning department in several scientific departments in hopes of renovation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

This campaign is a beautiful way of merging the 4 sciences STEM and in truly encouraging people to get interested in such a field. We’re all used to turning our attention to topics of interest such as travel, lifestyle, maybe even business. But Science, as a whole, is a field in which we need to invest our minds in for the foreseeable future.

The Saudi Arabian Sheikh is hoping to cooperate with special academic circles in order to attain more intel and understand science as well as its intricate applications. He also aims in prospering an educational environment through establishing a space sector platform that will be launching both Scientific and Economical paths. How cool is that!

The brains behind this entire innovative idea is Prince Sultan bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz, the chairman and board of directors in the Saudi Arabian Space Commission. Both him and his team are truly passionate and determined about wanting to enhance the education in Saudi Arabia, leaving them basically the first to think of such a pioneering idea.

The team consists of the most skilled technicians, creative thinkers and even designers who are fully contributing to this spectacular idea.
It was added that the scientific team that supported the prince’s journey included a group of scientists as well as the most skilled technicians, designers and creative thinkers who contributed to achieving this dream.

Ilham Al-Harbi, general director of the Space Generations Program, states that program is set to have a wide range of goals and strategic visions that aim to plant inspiration about space science for the future generations to indulge in.

Throughout education and history, it was never thought of to insist teaching the importance and wonder of Space Science, the least they tend to do is teach us a brief chapter about space and finito. Yet, that alone is not enough to spark interest in the younger minds to pursue learning about such a topic.

Ilham also openly stated to the press that her main aim is to develop future generations to strive for turning their dreams into reality. Beautifully stated, and with that cherry on top, we truly hope that science will be a major topic to be tackled in the upcoming years. What do you think? Do you think that science will finally be a great matter of interest that will soon become our main interest? We’ll just have to wait and see!
