We are not aware of it. But science is all around us. In our homes, in our mobile phones, in the engines that drives our cars. Almost every country in the world has a week totally devoted to Science. In Salalah, Dhofar in the south of Oman social media as facebook, twitter, whatsapp, instagram were used to announce the Science Week. For the fourth time the Science Week – still running till Thursday – is an initiative of the Ministry of Heritage and Culture and the Oman Science Club. For Salalah it is the first time to have the Science Week on its territory.
About 80 participants take part in five workshops about Electronics, Photography, Graphic design, Environment (coming Wednesday) and Astronomy (coming Thursday). All the workshops has one thing in common, the emphasis is rather on showing than telling. And that makes the workshops so interesting. At the end of the week – on Thursday – everyone who participates receives a certificate.
