About Us


The “Think Science” program was launched in October 2012 as part of the Emirates Foundation for Youth Development’s efforts to inspire and encourage UAE youth to embrace careers in science.

Think Science is a platform for UAE youth between the ages of 15 and 24 designed to develop their knowledge in the field of science and technology.  The program aims to motivate and inspire UAE youth to pursue their curiosity and passion and to investigate solutions that tackle real-world problems. 

The Program helps youth to also achieve their fullest potential by responding to the nation’s demands for science talents.

Think Science is made up of 3 core projects:

  • Think Science Competition is a nationwide science competition that engages UAE youth to develop, design and build science-based innovations that respond to society’s most pressing needs
  • Think Science Ambassadors are the change-makers that inspire, encourage and nurture the scientific work of UAE youth to guide them into cultivating innovative ideas that build the bridge between society and the academic world.
  • Think Science Connect is a platform that links youth interested in science, with young Science Ambassadors and scientific leaders in an interactive and engaging environment, to create ‘Emirati service talents’ and enrich their skills.


Think Science aims to discover and support scientific talent in UAE youth and encourage a well-rounded program of activities for young scientists to develop their critical thinking skills and talent. It also aims at empowering them to pursue long-term goals in the field of science and technology.
