The challenge has allowed them (learners) to connect with new ideas while showcasing their creativity.
Judging by the creative genius, dedication, and grit I have seen at #HappyPlant, we have a lot to look forward to. With such young talent, Dubai is definitely a city the rest of the world will look towards in the future for vision and innovation in sustainability and green economy.
Challenge has encouraged students, in groups, to think differently and think about exciting ways they can showcase their work.
As part of the Kalebr Challenge, the students apply these cornerstones to happiness and artificial intelligence, within their school work, through an engaging phenomenon based learning experience. #HappyPlant from Kalebr Challenge increases the links between innovation and learning and has resulted in some amazing projects from even more amazing students at the schools in Dubai.
We share ideas and build long-term partnerships that promote knowledge, skills and positive behaviours in learners of all ages, abilities and needs.
