AMMAN — As part of Jordan’s Year of Science 2017 (JYS), more than 24,000 pupils from public and private schools across the Kingdom visited the Ibn Al Haytham Exhibition, held at Ras Al Ain’s Jordan Museum last month, museum officials said.
The exhibition, inaugurated by Education Minister Omar Razzaz in the presence of HRH Princess Sumaya, was organised by the Royal Scientific Society, the Jordan Museum, and 1001 Inventions.
The expo received an average of 2,700 visitors per day, mainly from schools around Jordan, with the total turnout during the month “exceeding the number of visitors from last year”, the organisers said.
It was a station for science, knowledge, educational and extracurricular activities, to introduce them to Ibn Al Haytham’s life in science from March 8 to April 8, Museum Director Ihab Amarin told The Jordan Times recently.
