If you’re looking for a summer adventure with a difference during the school holidays, check out these playful ventures taking place at the Apple Dubai Mall over the next few weeks.
The Biomimicry Family Series will focus on methods of creating solutions to human challenges by emulating designs and ideas found in nature. Apple has invited artists, photographers and designers to help kids explore their inspiration from nature throughout July and August.
The series will run in parallel to Summer Camp, where kids can expand their digital creativity through hands-on projects with experts at Apple.
