Sharjah 24: The Sharjah Electricity, Water and Gas Authority (SEWA) launched the Future Engineer Camp 2, which runs from July 9 to 17, 2024, at Sharjah Archeology Museum, in the Halwan area.
The camp is a model of social responsibility and an ideal platform for preparing male and female students, aged 12 to 14 years old, for a promising professional future and providing them with the necessary technical skills. 

The camp includes a variety of activities and programmes that aim to invest their leisure time, develop their skills, help them enjoy their time during the summer vacation, as well as develop their creative and innovative skills and capabilities in the field of energy and introduce them to sustainable and renewable energy sources, conservation methods and behaviours, and security and safety procedures in energy use.

Rashid Al Marzouqi, Director of the Corporate Communications Department, explained that developing the skills of students, at this age, contributes to raising them to make environmentally friendly decisions and invest their time in what is useful and beneficial. 

Al Marzouqi pointed out that the camp includes an educational workshop entitled “How does electricity reach us”, explaining stages of electricity production and generation; a workshop entitled “Water is the Backbone of Life” about the stages of water production and distribution; and a scientific and technical workshop entitled “Conservation in Our Lives” that includes an explanation of methods for optimal use of water. 

The camp also includes a field visit to the conservation programme for mosques, changing water-conserving parts to reduce electricity consumption in mosques; creative workshops on making conservation dolls, “Kahroub and Qaturah”; a tour of the Antiquities Museum; an innovation session; applied technical workshops on electricity and purifying water from impurities; organising competitions; an exploration trip to the Museum of the Future in Dubai; and the closing ceremony for the graduation of “the engineer of the future”.

Al Marzouqi added that SEWA seeks every year to organise a series of specialised activities to develop the skills and knowledge of students, as the SEWA seeks to develop their knowledge in an enjoyable summer atmosphere, based on the SEWA's continuous endeavour to raise awareness of the importance of optimal use of energy and water. He concluded that the SEWA seeks to make the camp an exciting and beneficial experience for all participants.
