The show must go on: Stars of Science returns for its 12th season

-

The Arab world’s leading science show, ‘Stars of Science’, embarks on its 12th journey despite challenges posed by COVID-19.

Qatar Foundation’s (QF) Stars of Science returns to television screens for its 12th season on September 11, this time broadcasting on Qatar TV.

Launched in 2009, Stars of Science is the Arab world’s leading scientific ’edutainment’ reality TV program. In the nine-episode series, Arab innovators gather under the roof of QF’s Science and Technology Park to share their expertise, creativity and knowledge.

“Invention continues to be a necessity as the world faces unprecedented challenges,” says Khalifa Essa Al Kubaisi, Media Relations and Press Office Manager at Qatar Foundation in a press statement.

Hosted by Khaled Al Jumaily, this season will gather eight innovators who will address modern issues such as security threats of digital technologies in everyday life. The show exhibits the growth of ideas into prototypes that can eventually enter local and international markets that benefit the public.

Prior to the 2017 Saudi-led blockade, the show used to air on the Saudi owned, UAE-based channel, MBC 4, with scientists from all over the MENA region participating. As a direct consequence of the blockade the show had to find a new broadcasting partner, first moving to Kuwait-based Alrai TV.

Now scientists will return to the same setting with their ideas despite the presence of a pandemic.

“The COVID-19 pandemic posed great issues for Stars of Science and its contestants. However, our participants demonstrated their resilience, adapting and continuing their work with scientific diligence,” says Professor Mrad.

Tune in to Qatar TV on September 11 to watch the 12th season of Stars of Science.
