MADINA: The National Olympiad for Scientific Creativity Exhibition held by the Madina Education Administration became on Friday a celebration of the return to the Kingdom of King Abdullah, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques.
With 30 students taking part in the second qualifying round of the event, the occasion lauded King Abdullah’s encouragement and promotion of talent as speakers addressed his career and support for creativity.
Saud Al-Zahrani, head of Madina Education, said the Kingdom’s “true investment” was in the talent of students through their creativity and innovation in scientific and academic research, and described their work at the Olympiads as “confirmation of those creativities and energies”. “The real challenge lies in investing those abilities, particularly through the Ministry of Education’s new program in introducing a smart school environment,” he said.
