Grow Learning Space has announced expansion of their highly successful STEAM Virtual Boot Camp series to offer additional Boot Camps in a variety of subjects for middle and high school students. “We are so grateful for the overwhelming response for our online coding and STEAM experiences. Parents continue to call me personally to ask for more virtual camps and learning opportunities for their children. So we have worked to rapidly add new and exciting online classes to our virtual learning catalog,” said Zain Al-Zayani, founder of Grow Learning Space.
Grow Learning Space focuses on raising students skills, talents and passions for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) careers by giving learners of all ages access to mentored project-based learning experiences that are real, relevant and purposeful. Grow Learning Space frequently collaborates with a number of world-known entities, both international and local.
The Grow Boot Camps are fast, focused and fun to help engage and keep the learning momentum at a quick pace. Zain says: “We have found that today’s students want short sprints of learning when they are trying something new. We offer a way for students to discover their passion for learning STEAM in their areas of interest. Our Boot Camps are not just 10 hours over the course of a week, but they complement each other and can lead students to delve deeper in a topic and even achieve international industry credentials in an exciting career field. Students love our experiences, and parents appreciate the chance to give their children unique and personal learning moments.”
Mashaal Al Bayat, Khalid Deen’s mother, says: “Khalid is passionate about web development & design and Grow Learning Space provided him with a unique opportunity to not only learn and expand his knowledge, but also receive a certification at such a young age! Thank you Grow for your professionalism and support in providing industry level programs to young Bahrainis. Khalid can’t wait to join another program soon.”
Yasmin Abdulmajeed, a Computer Science graduate and Facilitator at Grow Learning Space adds: “As a Computer Science graduate, I am very familiar with the concepts taught. When working with the CTeLearning platform, I found the way they merge real-life applications with programming to be really engaging and relevant. So when I see the learners' eyes open up and sparkle as they learn something new, apply it and see the code working immediately, it’s pure joy. And at the end, when everything falls into place during their capstone project, the pride they demonstrate is truly rewarding.”
We had the honor of organizing a very unique social event for Ibn Khuldoon National School - a leading private school in Bahrain. In collaboration with the school's PTSA Committee, we organized Family STEM Night, an evening of STEM-based activities designed to engage families and their kids in a fun and educational way.
There were several stations in hall with guided activities in topics like electrical engineering, art, science, coding and robotics. Families rotated from one station to the next - working in complete synergy - and learning along the way!
Needless to say - we had a blast!
We participated at the Culture Authority's "Annual Bahrain Heritage Festival" that kicked off on the 24th of April, 2019. In its 27th edition, the Heritage Festival showcased various aspects from the past that shaped Bahrain's beautiful culture.
This year, the focus is on "Arabian Horses" and Grow created exclusive equestrian activities that combined art and electrical engineering. During both workshops, learners got an introduction on electrical circuits and created their own interactive, LED pieces of art!
We were honored to collaborate with the Bahrain Authority for Culture & Authority in their Five p.m. at BAB initiative - a weekly outdoor event that sees incredible events ranging from music to markets to art!
We created the perfect outdoor activity, merging between creativity and electricity! During the Creative Paper Circuits, we made some stunning illuminated pieces of art! We used conductive material and made simple and complex electric circuits with cool lighting effects. What an electrifying evening!
2019 saw the start of an amazing initiative with iWorld Bahrain. Weekends at iWorld is a collaboration between Grow Learning Space and iWorld Bahrain (Bahrain's Apple retail outlet - the first of its kind in Bahrain and the second in the GCC). Every Saturday at noon, we host a number of (pre-registered) learners for 60 minutes of intensely fun and educational technology sessions. Topics range from coding bots to creating mazes.
Pre-registration is a must and all announcements are posted here. We hope to see you and your learners soon!
We had the privilege of collaborating with two world-class organizations earlier this month during Computer Science Education Week for global learning event, Hour of Code!
We organized 2 Hour of Code events, one with Playsy on December 9 and the other with iWorld on December 14.
Coders at Playsy got their moves on and coded their characters to move and groove to the latest songs.
Coders at iWorld deep dived in Minecraft's latest underwater world adventure and solved all the challenges with soaring colors.
We interacted with spectacular coders from the ages of 5 and all the way to 12! What an incredible 120-minutes!

Grow Learning Space was invited by the newly-opened, state-of-the-art iWorld retail outlet at The Avenues - Bahrain's first official Apple Flagship store, and the second flagship in the GCC.
Grow's youngest coders, aged, 7, 10 and 11, were on hand demonstrating how exciting and educational the Sphero is.
Stay tuned for more amazing collaborations with iWorld!
