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!
We had the honor of working with the incredible team at the Energy Exhibit, a major component at the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture, also known as Ithra.
The Energy Exhibit is a modern and inspiring exhibit experience showcasing ARAMCO's incredible journey with petroleum and energy science. The Exhibit is divided into 3 areas: the exhibit, the workshop space, and the theater. Hundreds of families and children of all ages visit the exhibit on a daily basis.
Grow Learning Space's Founder and Managing Director, Zain Al-Zayani, collaborated with the management and science communicator team at the Energy Exhibit in developing STEM workshops. The workshops are currently offered at the Energy Exhibit.
