June 16, 2014 7:37 am

More than 170 students from the Dubai American Academy (DAA) visited Nakheel to discover how Palm Jumeirah and other world-leading, waterfront projects turned from vision to reality and set new standards in innovative engineering.

The primary school children saw a presentation on how Nakheel’s flagship projects reshaped the coastline of Dubai and rapidly became some of the most famous landmarks and sought-after destinations in the world, followed by an interactive question and answer session and a close up view of scale models of Nakheel’s projects.

A Nakheel spokesman, said, “It is always a delight to share our knowledge and experiences with the young people of Dubai, some of whom, after seeing our work first hand, are inspired to go to pursue a career in engineering, design or construction themselves.”

Andy May, one of the teachers at DAA to accompany the students on their trip to Nakheel, added, “It was an honour for our pupils to visit Nakheel to learn some of the history behind these world-famous landmarks. We thank Nakheel for making us so welcome and for allowing us the chance to go behind the scenes on their waterfront creations.”
