The students participated in the competition were divided into 28 teams, and were challenged to find a solution to global issues that are affecting the environment, quality of living, safety and security.

The STEAM challenge stands for science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics, and it is the seventh and largest in KAUST competition to take place in KAUST so far.

The challenge lasted for three days, from the second of May till the fourth, participants were taken through different levels that tested their creativity and social awareness, from problems definition to marketing to discussing global issues.

This year’s STEAM was in partnership with Northrop Grumman, General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) and Elm.

“We designed STEAM Innovation Challenge to inspire youth in Saudi Arabia on a national scale by immersing them in an intensive innovation experience,” said Hattan Ahmed, head of KAUST Entrepreneurship Center.

“The students addressed real challenges around the topic of sustainable cities crafted in collaboration with our corporate partners,” he added.

One of the wining projects was iCare, which is a bracelet developed to monitor the vitals of pilgrims and send reports to healthcare providers in case any accident occur. A device that is both innovative, and very beneficial.

It is certainly impressive to see the young minds of Saudi Arabia competing for the better good of the world, and presenting smart solutions that benefit their country.
