Oman has announced the winners of its outstanding NXplorers projects for 2023

Shell and the Ministry of Education recently awarded its outstanding NXplorers projects developed by students from across Oman at an event held in Muscat.

Since it launched in 2018, NXplorers has benefitted almost 3,000 students, and has equipped over 240 teachers with key skills to mentor and nurture Omani youth STEM-related fields of study. This year, the programme has been expanded to include not only senior students from grades 9 to 12, but also junior students from grades 5 to 8.

The event brought together 44 science and maths teachers from different governorates of the Sultanate of Oman to discuss the triumphs and challenges of the programme as part of the launch of our inaugural Alumni Club.

“NXplorers is designed to motivate and inspire students to use their creativity and knowledge to develop solutions related to food, water and energy challenges“, said Malak Al Shaibani, General Manager of Corporate Relations and In-Country Value at Oman Shell. “The programme also helps students to enhance their collaboration skills as they team up to create innovative projects addressing challenges faced by their local communities.”

As Oman progresses towards its vision for the future and achieves its national goals, programmes such as NXplorers will continue to have a lasting impact on the next generation’s ability to build a bright, prosperous and sustainable tomorrow.
