ENGINEERS OF THE FUTURE
Yas Marina Circuit, in collaboration with Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) , bring you Yas in Schools, a youth-focused initiative that offers schools a pathway for project-based STEM learning programmes. Students, aged eight to 21 years old, learn essential skills across science, technology, engineering and mathematics in a fun and unique environment.
