The second round of judging will involve the judges looking at costings of the students’ prototypes to decide who goes forward to the Finals in Oman, where the finalists of the eight Middle Eastern countries involved will be judged.

The Tatawwar interactive programme is organised by HSBC in partnership with potential.com. The programme bring aims to bring together students, schools, parents and the business community to help innovate for a shared future. It also provides 15-18 year olds with the opportunity to learn new business skills.
