The Science Around Us


Science is all around us, from specialized research labs to the casual moments of our daily lives. This program is for anyone curious about the incredible presence of science in our lives and how we are informed about it through podcasts, social media, live shows, and TV. This program will address ways to improve how we consume and share information about science.

Dr. Muhammad Qasem will talk about the journey of science, its importance, power and presence in our daily lives.

Dr. Khalid Al-Yahya will discuss the role of science in the lives of children, focusing on the funny situations they experience with science.
