Stars Of Science Jury Join Remotely In Another Unprecedented Milestone

  • 1 month ago

Qatar Foundation’s Stars of Science has undertaken several measures to continue filming Season 12, overcoming the difficulties presented by COVID-19 while ensuring the safety of contestants, jury members, experts, and filming crew. 

And in this week’s episode – as international flights ground to a halt – jury members Professor Fouad Mrad and Professor Abdelhamid El-Zoheiry were forced to join remotely through video call. This unexpected change prompted Yosouf Al-Salehi, Qatar Science & Technology Park’s (QSTP) Executive Director and a former member of the show’s jury, to return to Stars of Science, joining the jury members to help instill an additional level of scrutiny on the contestants’ work.

“This crisis showed us the importance of investment in science and technology. QSTP’s leadership continues to pour resources into finding solutions that will help our communities combat the pandemic,” Al-Salehi said. “Stars of Science drives the promotion and retention of innovative talent while demonstrating the Arab World’s capacity to develop technologies that are increasingly critical in every industry.”
