The drive also features a summer hackathon and an online platform to keep children and young adults mentally and physically active.

With the opening of the Rize Virtual University Fair, the Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (Adek) has launched the 'Never Stop Learning' campaign for children this summer.

The drive also features a summer hackathon and an online platform to keep children and young adults mentally and physically active.

"Our parents and students have worked so hard to complete the school year in extraordinary circumstances and they deserve great credit. We understand that this summer is very different with limited options for entertainment and socialising," said Amer Al Hammadi, Adek undersecretary.

"We wanted to provide our youth with a variety of initiatives to keep them active and engaged in a fun and compelling way regardless of their interests. The Never Stop Learning campaign reinforces our commitment to supporting everyone within the Adek community," he added.

The university fair, targeting students in grades eight to 12, features 74 universities from Australia, Asia, Europe, the UK and North America, will continue until July 23.

The activity platform of Adek is a new playground for the community, for young children just starting school, to students about to graduate university. It will be useful for those looking to catch up on necessary skills and higher education advice, take on a coding competition, challenge friends and just learn a new hobby.

From gaming and challenges to reading and virtual experiences, the platform is home for fun-filled and meaningful adventures.
