Students from Compass International School Doha (Compass) bested over 300 other teams from around Qatar as they take home the prestigious Qatar Environment and Energy Research Institute Young Innovators Award.

The team of seven Primary students from Compass’ Madinat Khalifa Campus were announced as winners and received their award at the International Conference on Sustainable Energy – Water – Environment Nexus 2019 held at the Qatar National Convention Centre.

The Compass Young Innovators’ project aimed towards Clean Water and Sanitation, which is Goal 6 of the UNICEF Global Goals for Sustainable Development. The students researched water sustainability in Qatar and innovative ways to use water more responsibly and to reduce water consumption around the school. As part of their research, the students visited Hamad Bin Khalifa University and Texas A&M University at Qatar.

Jimmy Frawley, Head of Primary at Compass International School Doha’s Madinat Khalifa Campus said:

Winning the Young Innovators Award is a fantastic achievement for our students and is a fitting reward for their hard work, diligence and determination to make a positive difference in our school and the local community. At Compass, we encourage every child to Be Ambitious and these students have certainly shown their ambition throughout this project.’
