“Qatar Shell joins Dadu’s expanding ‘Founding Family’ members whose generous support and shared vision will contribute to the growth and development of Qatar’s children and youth.

“Making the future is at the heart of Shell, and we are delighted to partner with Qatar Museums to support their mission to inspire Qatar’s children and to help equip them for the challenges of tomorrow. Innovation, technology and science are part of Shell’s DNA and we share Qatar Museums ambition to look for creative, innovative and impactful ways to empower future generations to become agents of change and develop STEM habits.

“This collaboration will support and celebrate the growth of young engineers and we look forward to partnering with Qatar Museums to support their creative vision and the human and social development pillars of the Qatar National Vision 2030,” said Mr. Tallant.
