ENRICHMENT PROGRAM IN THE FALL 2014

From October 19 To October 24

For the first time ever, KAUST brings you an exciting Enrichment Program dedicated to the Fall

The Winter Enrichment Program is known as the hallmark of KAUST. Over the years it has become an annual event with a primary purpose to enrich and inspire not only KAUST students and community members but also academic and industrial partners. Starting from October this year, the office will be also responsible for organizing Enrichment Programs in the Fall and in the Spring.

This first Enrichment Program will run from Sunday 19 to Saturday 25 in October and will mainly focus on biodiversity, birds, and wildlife, plants (birds watching sessions, birds exhibitions/lectures/discussions, animals within movies, botanical tour, cooking show…), science-related events (mini-Science Fair…) and music demonstrations/concerts.
