A small selection of some of the events that have recently taken place as part of the YME community.
Nord Anglia School, Dubai recently worked with our partners 'You and Eye' to help create graphics for a range of sand-boards they had made in school. Students watched their designs being printed and laminated before getting expert guidance to apply the designs to their products.
Students were also treated to a tour of their workshop facilities, giving them an insight into commercial printing production methods.
The result was inspired students, some great outcomes and a greater understanding of curriculum content that hands-on learning can give.
June 2019 saw one of the first networking events in the U.A.E. for Design & Technology teachers. Organized by Sunmarke School, Youth Made Emirates highlighted some of the opportunities available to schools and students in the area.
The event was attended by a number of representatives of local industry and education, including DIDI, ICCA, Brother and Techsoft.
Events such as this are vital to continue to build a community of like-minded individuals in the creative sector and in education.
We hope it is the first of many!
