Two young Arab innovators have progressed to the next stage of Qatar Foundation’s Stars of Science TV show. Fouad Maksoud and Mohamed Farag bid farewell to Zainab Abosuhail, who came up just short with the show’s three-man jury.
Fouad and Mohamed may have impressed so far, but they will need to redouble their efforts to keep their winning streaks alive in the next stage of the show.
Fouad provided the jury with an extensive explanation on the inner workings of his project, a machine that employs electro-spinning nanotechnology to make everyday textiles, like shirts or socks, water resistant. “Advancements in the nanotechnology field can have an enormous impact on our lives,” he said. “As someone who has spent years studying this technology, I know we have many reasons to be excited about its vast potential.”

Mohamed made a compelling argument for his device, a smart gym retrofit kit that automatically records and analyses exercise metrics in the weight room, such as sets and repetitions. Mohamed’s passion for fitness is the inspiration behind his innovation. “Knowledge is power – and more knowledge during a workout can make you stronger,” he said. “My innovation will help motivate users to stay fit and enjoy an active lifestyle – an issue so important in our region.”
The final prototyping episode this weekend will determine who joins Mohamed al-Jefairi, Ahmad Nabeel, Fouad Maksoud, and Mohamed Farag in the Stars of Science customer validation round. Full broadcast guide or episodes are available on www.starsofscience.com
