The 7th season of Stars of Science, which kicked off in mid-September, will air its finale on November 20th, 2015, on MBC4. The program is an original TV format initiated by the Qatar Foundation, which encourages the Arab world’s next generation of aspiring science and technology innovators. In this season, 12 candidates are challenged to prove their resourcefulness during different stages of the innovation cycle with the support of engineering and design mentors.
The program culminates in a live finale where the 4 finalists are ranked by a combination of jury deliberation and public voting and are awarded a share of a $600,000 cash prize.
During the Pan Arab casting tour, which spans 6 countries, potential candidates are shortlisted for a review by a jury comprised of leading experts. After the selection stage, 12 bright minds from around the Arab world are invited to the Stars of Science labs in Qatar Science & Technology Park (QSTP) in Doha to compete in the program.
In collaboration with a wide variety of international and local experts, organizations and institutions, candidates spare no effort to design, build and test their prototypes as they prepare to defend their work to the jury over crucial elimination rounds.
Tune in to MBC4 for the live finale on Friday, November 20, 5:00PM GMT.
