Fifth Dimension Elementary School will become a community center in Nad Al Shiba with its community commitment and innovative resources. The school has acquired bio-domes so that children can study how living and non-living things interact in their natural environments.
Bio-domes will become a pillar of the Nad Al Shiba community through innovative learning and a community-centered curriculum. The decision to install them was driven by the school’s focus on preparing children for a new way of thinking and living. The bio-domes are lined up with the school passport, which each child carries with them. The passport is used to celebrate and reward children who realize the vision and values of the school in practice. Bio-domes will give children and the community an insight into how humans might live in the future.
Commenting on this innovative approach to education, the founding director, Dr. Terry Burwell, said: “Our goal is to inspire our children and Nad Al Shiba’s community. More children than ever need to be prepared for a complex world and need preparation to solve complex problems. We’re really focused on that, and bio-domes are a fantastic resource for driving our ambitions and building a new generation of learners. ”
For the wider community, the school plans to engage the community through urban agriculture, which is widely known as a way to model community thinking around environmental awareness, healthy eating habits, and community associations. . In addition, one of the domes will focus especially on space travel and the UAE mission to Mars. Children will learn about what life can be like in the future and how humans can adapt to a new planet. Children will learn about the geology of Mars and study Martian rocks, volcanoes, craters, valleys, ridges, and other terrestrial formations to try to figure out how they formed. They will identify and understand what a new Martian colony would need for human survival.
