SQCC Visits Embassy Adoption Program Class 

The Sultan Qaboos Cultural Center (SQCC) is excited to be participating for the second time in the Embassy Adoption Program. This unique educational program is a partnership program of DC Public Schools and Washington Performing Arts.

This year, SQCC was matched with a fifth grade class at John Eaton Elementary School. SQCC staff visited Eaton Elementary School on April 6, 2016. We spoke to students about climate change and how Oman is dealing with this global issue. Students drew pictures of habitats and discussed how climate change could negatively affect the habitats of various animals. Students then participated in a hands-on experiment demonstrating the risks of rising sea levels.
