The report said that the forum’s goal is to give students the knowledge and abilities they need to compete in the Olympiad and to contribute to the development of a generation of space scientists and technologists.

According to the statement stated, it also aims to “inspire future generations to pursue careers in applied scientific and engineering fields.”

Mawhiba and the commission have been involved in a number of training initiatives aimed at producing scientists and engineers for the emerging space sector in the Kingdom.
