Al Ain-based aerospace manufacturer kicks off month-long youth outreach programme in partnership with Think Science and the Tawteen 360°Student Forum

Al Ain, UAE – 11 March 2019:   Strata Manufacturing, the advanced composite aero structures manufacturing company wholly owned by Mubadala Investment Company PJSC, has participated in a nationwide outreach programme to further empower UAE youth by contributing in initiatives led by Think Science and the Tawteen 360° Student Forum.

The Al Ain-based company will tour six emirates to host a series of motivational talks and workshops focused on educating and encouraging Emirati youth to engage with science, technology and innovation as part of Think Science – a programme set up by the UAE Ministry of Education and Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge. The event aims to identify eager and gifted youth with advanced innovative solutions that seeks to serve a community benefit and betters the lives of others. 

“To realise the UAE's wider goals of building a knowledge-based economy, ambitious and skilled talent is required to drive necessary growth forward. Through initiatives such as Think Science and Tawteen, Strata is able to encourage the country's youth to consider a career in the aerospace industry, a key sector- driving the UAE's vision of youth development and economic diversification,” said Ismail Ali Abdulla, CEO of Strata. 
“With more than half of our workforce being UAE nationals, Strata is a global success story built on homegrown assets. Our commitment to nurturing, developing and championing the leaders of tomorrow is the foundation of Strata's long-term growth, with our skill-based workforce amplifying Abu Dhabi, and the wider UAE, as a manufacturing hub,” added Abdulla.

In line with Think Science's focus on empowering and supporting youth across the UAE, Strata's expert engineers will share insights on several topics in addition to showcasing various technologies used in the manufacturing processes such as Additive Manufacturing. Topics include best-practises on success, how to create opportunities, accepting challenges and pushing boundaries, plus innovation and improvement.

As part of the wider Think Science competition, Strata will also host workshops where students build an airplane using materials and structures provided by the Al Ain-based manufacturer. The students will be asked to consider safety, quality, cost, delivery and people when manufacturing the aircraft. The hands-on activity gives participants the opportunity to solve a real-life problem through teamwork and creative thinking.

Strata also participated in Tawteen 360° Student Forum in Fujairah on February 25-27, a student forum hosted by The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation in partnership with the Ministry of Education. The event offered students an exciting journey with dedicated stations led by leading company's across the UAE, including Strata, that provided attendees with a comprehensive experience to prepare them for future careers.

Strata's support of youth-focused events such as Think Science and Tawteen aligns with the company's ethos and existing initiatives to educate and encourage Emirati students. Through its efforts, and collaboration with partners, Strata is contributing to the creation of a platform that will enable youth to become leaders of the future.
