Students of GEMS Jumeirah Primary School in Dubai dressed up in space-themed outfits on Wednesday to celebrate the historic journey of first Emirati astronaut Hazzaa AlMansoori to the International Space Station (ISS).
Over the past two weeks, the school has been reading news articles to keep up to date with Hazzaa's progress in Russia prior to the mission as well as watching lots of videos online from the MBRSC.
"Students in the Year 1 used recyclable junk materials to create rockets, ModRok to make moon stones and asteroids and they are doing a taste test later on, pretending to be astronauts, which links to their Science topic on senses," the school said in a press release.
While students in In Year 2, have looked at Hazzaa's mission patch in detail and what each part represents.
"We are running a competition where the children are creating their own mission patches, the winning ones will be sent to the UAE Astronaut programme and certificates will be given," the statement added.
