What drives science?

As science discoveries are made, we look at how women have emerged as trailblazers, breaking barriers, and reshaping the world of discovery. In Qatar, their contributions to the growth of scientific endeavors are nothing short of remarkable. From advancing research in healthcare to driving innovation in technology, women scientists in Qatar have played a pivotal role in shaping the nation's scientific landscape. 

Looking at the significant strides made by women scientists in Qatar across various fields. In healthcare, researchers like Dr. Hanan Al Kuwari have been instrumental in enhancing healthcare services and implementing innovative solutions to address public health challenges. Their dedication and expertise have not only improved healthcare outcomes but have also positioned Qatar as a hub for medical research and innovation in the region. 

In fields such as engineering and technology, women have been at the forefront of innovation. Through groundbreaking research and entrepreneurial endeavors, they have contributed to Qatar's 2030 vision of becoming a knowledge-based economy. Contributions range from sustainable energy solutions to advancements in artificial intelligence, driving Qatar towards a more sustainable and technologically advanced future. 

However, the journey towards gender equality in STEM fields is ongoing, and initiatives aimed at empowering young women to pursue careers in science are crucial. This is where educational institutions play a pivotal role. Compass International School Doha with collaboration such as MIT is nurturing the next generation of female scientists and innovators. Expanding the possibilities and interest of our young scientists to build a foundational love of learning in this expanding field.
