SQCC Participates at the DAR Museum's Second Annual World's Fair Event

Saturday, August 4, 2018

SQCC participated in the second annual DAR Museum's World's Fair on Saturday 4 August. The fair’s intention was to have participants experience the excitement, innovation, and wonder of the world's fairs of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The event celebrated cultures around the world via cultural exhibition booths and activities hosted by different embassies and cultural centers.  

Many fair goers flocked to SQCC’s booth and enjoyed the cultural display of Omani handicrafts, tourism materials, and promotional information about SQCC’s programs. Guests learned to play Hawalis, an Omani board game that requires players to test their mathematical ability through intelligent deliberate play. Visitors also learned about Omani frankincense firsthand by painting replicas of majmars (frankincense burners) and took them home as souvenirs from their visit.
