The Qur’anic Botanic Garden (QBG) has concluded its ‘Fun & Learn’ summer education workshops for primary school students, held in collaboration with the women’s branch of Eid Charity.

More than 150 girls from various primary school stages participated in the ‘Fun & Learn’ workshops, which took place at Hamad bin Khalifa University’s (HBKU) Student Center in Education City. The students enjoyed a series of engaging activities and interactive games, such as colouring, puzzles, quizzes and contests, introducing them to plant life and growth. Students also took part in planting activities, which helped them familiarise and identify plant anatomy and function.
