ADEK elevates 21st century skills of students

As part of its continued efforts to build the next generation of learners, the Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (ADEK) announced the launch of Rize Enrichment Programs, a unique educational initiative designed to equip students with new and essential skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, The Arts and Mathematics (STEAM), to prepare them for a rapidly changing world.

Open to all public school students in Abu Dhabi, from Grades 1 to 12 starting October 2019, Rize offers fun after-school sessions in cutting-edge STEAM subjects in nine public and Charter schools across Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra. The Annual Program groups courses into three themes: Tech, Arts and Culture, and Math. Rize courses take place four days per week and are offered separately, two days for boys and two days for girls. In addition to the annual program, students will have the opportunity to participate in the Competitions and Learning Journeys initiatives for a more immersive educational experience. Selection is based on attendance, merit and performance within the annual program.

Sanad Ahmad, Chairman of the Students Enrichment Programs Committee at The Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge, said “The launch of Rize Enrichment Programs is part of The Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge’s priority to align the teaching of STEAM subjects in Abu Dhabi with the highest international standards. We aim to shape future innovators who will use their critical thinking, analytical and problem-solving skills to find solutions to the most pressing issues in the 21st century.”

He added: “Rize comprises a series of hands on workshops as well as fun and unique learning activities that not only improve students’ knowledge of STEAM subjects for future career success, but also engage and inspire their interest and passion for learning. Through the Annual Program, Competitions and Learning Journeys, we are confident that students will gain the exposure and capabilities necessary to bridge the knowledge and skills gap between academia and industry. Our goal is to empower the younger generation to become globally competitive and actively contribute to building a knowledge-based economy.”

By focusing on 21st century important subjects like AI, and culturally significant subjects such as Arabic Poetry, Rize Enrichment Programs support the objectives of the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030 through diversifying students’ capabilities and enhancing their academic performance.
