 Participants attend a presentation during the event.

Msheireb Properties has supported Al Bairaq World - an initiative of the Qatar University's Materials Technology Unit (MTU) aimed at promoting the teaching and appreciation of science in Qatar's secondary schools.

Students who took part in the 'I Am a Researcher' programme over two weeks with college scientists to study practical problems and their best coursework is now on show at the Msheireb Enrichment Centre.

The students involved in the Al Bairaq programme are members of the Future Affiliate Club, the company's flagship programme for supporting young Qataris in contributing to the nation's growth. The exhibition, open to all participating students, their families and friends, provides a glimpse of the future through school students' eyes.

Al Bairaq is an educational project that encourages students to appreciate science and research. It was launched to support Qatar's efforts to develop its knowledge-based economy, enrich its human capital and improve competitiveness through innovation, entrepreneurship and applied research. Msheireb Properties and the Future Affiliates Club were involved in the committee that helped set up and manage the programme.

Msheireb Properties launched the Future Affiliate Club to create an appropriate platform for Qatari nationals to be actively involved in the development of a new Qatar.

The Future Affiliate aims to create the right medium to explore various career options to help students contribute to their community and its membership offers school students, including undergraduates, a range of academic and professional guidance, including work experience and mentoring by company personnel, support with research projects and career advice, as well as opportunities to take part in various events and competitions. The Msheireb Enrichment Centre is open to the public from Monday-Thursday from 9am-8:30pm and on Saturdays from 3:30pm-6:30pm. Entrance is free.
