Al-Bairaq World is an non-traditional educational project carried out by Center for Advanced Materials (CAM) at Qatar University, in which students in the final grade at Qatari independent secondary school work in teams with highly exquisite university-level scientists on practical scientific problems in authentic contexts. Any student at the school, regardless of gender, nationality, socio-economic status, or special needs is eligible to participate.

Faculty members train and mentor this future generation of scientists and help develop and enhance their critical-thinking, problem-solving,a nd team-working skills. Students, in teams, formulate their own research questions related to materials science; build a research plan; investigate, using state-of-the-art technology and scientific instrumentation; and report findings in a public forum, evaluated by representatives from business and industry.
