Curiosity Lab is a child enrichment program where children
are treated as the scientists of tomorrow. They experiment. They interact. They explore. Their curiosity is sparked, nurtured and fueled.
Children are guided by teachers who share their scientific curiosity and believe in the power of education, as they explore the world they inhabit through exciting experiments and ingenious demonstrations.
Science is taught with all its wonder intact.
Children are born with an innate curiosity about the world they inhabit. Questions like, "why is the sky blue?" and "where do babies come from?" may get on your nerves at times, but to continuously ask those questions is what makes great scientists.
However, something unfortunate happens to a child's wonderful curiosity as they grow up. We start with children who aspire to be scientists and finish with teenagers who are disillusioned with science.
We believe that the problem lies with formal education, where science is taught through "say so" and scarcely leaves the domain of textbooks. We don't let children experiment, interact or experience science enough. We get them to focus on getting high test scores, while we neglect and forget their curiosity.
At Curiosity Lab, we don't bore our students with dry theory. We constantly look for ways to make the science come alive. We believe that this is the only way for them to gain a clear understanding of, and an appreciation for what makes the world around them tick.
Moheb Nabeel (or just Mo) is the Founder and Chief Curiosity Officer of Curiosity Lab. He is responsible for all the teaching, research, development and inventions.
Once upon a time, there was a fiercely curious kid growing up in Dubai. He was a voracious reader who constantly looked at the world around him and asked,"Why?". This made him quite the overachiever at school and he went on to study Mechanical Engineering in the UK on scholarship. After graduating, he worked for some pretty awesome companies there and back here in Dubai.
However, that wasn't enough for him.
You see, he loved Science! His curiosity could never be satisfied. He just had to learn about anything and everything. And from this grew another passion; to teach all the amazing stuff he had learned to anybody that would listen so that they could appreciate the beauty and wonder of the cosmos.
So, he came up with Curiosity Lab in 2015 by combining his two great passions in life, science & education, with the hope of inspiring future doctors, engineers, inventors and scientists, by making them fall in love with science. Just like he did.
Eugene Kerrigan is Chief Inspiration Officer at Curiosity Lab. He is responsible for teaching and business development.
Once upon a time, there lived a salesman whose decade-long successful journey through the corporate world had left him unfulfilled. Frustrated and disenchanted, he decided to make a change and become a primary school teacher.
That's when his world went from grey to technicolor. Looking at the world through his students' eyes, he rediscovered things that he loved as a kid; dinosaurs, planets and magnets. He loved every single day because working with people who see the world with no prejudice or cynicism is inspiring!
When Eugene moved to Dubai, he wandered the desert in search of an environment where his creativity would be encouraged and in May of 2018, he joined Mo at Curiosity Lab and began making kids fall in love with science!
