Trip to Saruq Al Hadid

Trip to Saruq Al Hadid

TCSI always engages students to be active learners and promote a healthy learning environment by enriching students with different experiences so that they can get a chance to explore more about Arabic heritage and UAE culture.
On Thursday 17th October 2019, the students of Year 7 visited Saruq Al Hadid archaeological museum as a part of their learning experience.
Saruq Al Hadid is set in a spectacular desert landscape in Southern Dubai. They have evidence of over five thousand years of activity, and it has already changed our understanding of iron age in the Arabian peninsula.
The tour begins with an immersive experience. A 3D cinematic room transports you to the edge of the desert and makes you feel like you are there at the amazing excavation site. Along the journey of discovery, you will find dynamic videos projected on the walls, and even interactive screens to engage with. Children can put on their archaeology hat and go digging!
The simulated excavation site has objects buried in the sand. Grab a brush and start discovering, you will soon find out what it feels like to be an archaeologist.
Students learnt a lot from this visit especially about stone age and what weapons and jewelry they used in the past. The visit was fun and informative. It inspired students in many ways and taught them to be grateful for what we have achieved till now and advancement in transport and technology.
