Over 10,000 UAE students to participate in virtual arts, science exhibition of Gulf Medical University
Pupils in Grades 10 to 12 may submit their entries for competitions until September 30.
More than 10,000 students from across the Emirates are expected to participate in this year's Medical and Science Exhibition (MASE), the biggest UAE inter-school event of its kind, organised by Gulf Medical University (GMU).
Now in its 14th edition, this will be the first time that the annual event will be held online.
Participation is open to students in Grades 10 to 12. There will be competitions for arts, science, and a combination of both. These include projects, posters and painting categories, with the number of entries limited to one per student in each category. However, participants are allowed to submit entries for multiple categories. This year, the event has added new competitions like English and Arabic poetry and music composition.
Elaborating on the objectives of the GMU's MASE, Hossam Hamdy, the chancellor of the university, said: "Every year, the GMU organises MASE to nurture the scientific and arts talents of students and imbibe in them scientific thinking, innovation and humanism.
"Medicine is an art and a science. Art acts as a medium to stimulate scientific thinking and engage the brain, making it an important tool to strengthen the consciousness of future medical and science professionals."
Entries can be submitted online at https://gmu.ac.ae/mase/2020/. Posters and pictures can be uploaded as image files, while projects must be uploaded as videos. Videos must be two to five minutes long, explaining the working principle, its benefits for the society, and the inspiration behind the project.
Participants can also upload their poems and music composition files. Once the entries are approved, they appear on the MASE website, and participants may seek votes for their entries by sharing the link on social media.
Cash prizes await the winners, and all participants will be presented gift vouchers for various services at Thumbay Group entities.
All entries have to be uploaded on or before September 30. Submissions will be evaluated by a panel of judges from the UAE, Europe and the US. An awarding ceremony will be held on October 10.
