Itinerary

Your educational student tour has begun! Upon arriving at Dubai International Airport (DXB), you will be transferred by a local guide to your hotel to unpack. You can then regroup for mouth-watering, authentic Middle Eastern cuisine. 

Your local guides will be with you in through each step of your travels, so feel free to introduce yourself and ask lots of questions! Spend the rest of your afternoon exploring Dubai at your leisure. From its lush beaches to luxury shopping to lively nightlife, there are activities for everyone to enjoy. However, make sure you get lots of rest before the first excursion of your trip.

Today you will experience Dubai’s top five famous attractions and activities. Start a the Burj Al Arab and Atlantis The Palm to marvel at their spectacular architecture. Next, take a dhow (wooden boat) ride on the Dubai Marina. Enjoy a coffee at a cafe on the pier before traveling to the 124th-floor Burj Khalifa observation deck. Take in panoramic views of the city at the top of the world’s tallest building! Finally, you will enjoy a late buffet lunch at the Armani Hotel with full views of the Dubai Fountain Show.

Put on your lab coat and goggles for today’s activities. You will arrive at STEMA Center, which specializes in interactive STEM programs. You’ll first participate in augmented reality. You’ll experience a real-world environment where the scenery that reflects the real world is augmented by computer perceptual information, including haptic, visual, and auditory inputs. After lunch, you’ll interact with an intelligent humanoid robot. Expert scientists will show you how to program the robot to move, talk, and act like a human. Try and get it to make you a cup of tea!

Today is going to be wet and wild as you travel to Dubai’s Aquaventure Waterpark. Start the day with a tour of the park by an expert engineer who participated in building this famous attraction. He’ll answer all of your questions about the engineering process. Next, it’s time to put on your bathing suit and enjoy the rest of the day in the water. Ride through shark tunnels, career down corkscrew chutes, or relax on the lazy river. If you’re an animal lover, be sure to check out one of the 21 exhibits containing over 65,000 marine animals!

It’s back to the STEMA Center to enjoy more interactive education. You’ll begin by exploring the programming process of game design. Develop characters and challenges in your imagination before testing your game on your fellow group members. You’ll also get the opportunity to try out their games. After lunch, you’ll engage in the program, Smart City. Scientists will introduce you to smart cities, 3D printing and design, and Internet of Things (IoT). Next, you’ll get to design and build an intelligent subsystem with your team and connect them through varying apps and clouds.

Today, you will journey into the desert. Once you reach the dunes, jump in a 4×4 to barrel across the sandy slopes to a Bedouin-style desert camp. Be welcomed with a hot cup of Arabic coffee and fresh dates. Next, zip and zoom on quad bikes around on the desert terrain around the camp. You’ll also visit a camel farm to enjoy a ride on this gentle creature. You will enjoy a BBQ lunch with a show of belly dancers before heading back to your hotel.

Your final morning will consist of an early breakfast on the beach with your local guides. After packing, you will be transported to the local airport to fly home. We hope you not only immensely enjoyed this Dubai adventure, but also gained an education in the process. We hope to see you again soon!
