Together with their supervisors, they will engage in scientific and technological researches and inventions, and explore knowledge beyond the text books so as to broaden their horizon.

The “Eyas Plan” has yielded some preliminary results since its implementation. Nine college laboratories have joined hands with 22 high schools. They have jointly developed more than 30 courses and designed nearly a hundred research subjects.
