Not only students get to visit the much-anticipated Expo 2020 Dubai for free, but schools have also incorporated events related to the World Fair into the curriculum with projects covering topics such as robotics, artificial intelligence (AI) and climate change.
The Expo School Programme offers students access to four immersive journeys designed to tap into their potential and spark their creativity: Legacy of the UAE, World of Opportunities, Sustainable Planet and Universe in Motion.
As per a recent announcement by GEMS Education, 122,000 students across 165 nationalities will have the opportunity to visit the Expo at least twice as part of the school year, if not more.
Over the next six months, 43 GEMS schools are expected to contribute at least 277,000 student-teacher visits through 9,780 school trips.
Moreover, 450,000 Expo-related lessons have been included in the current academic year, along with 774 ground-breaking activities, competitions and innovative projects.
Deepika Thapar Singh, CEO and principal of Credence High School, also said the school has already booked the dates for visiting Expo 2020.
“Expo 2020 is going to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for our students and teachers and we are all excited to learn and visit the pavilions,” she said.
