Here are some inclusive FAQs about the Bahrain Science Centre.

Bahrain Science Centre What is a Science Centre? Globally, Science Centres and interactive museums have taken the lead in hands-on, inquirybased learning. They focus on promoting discussions and debates while learning, and on deriving explanations, rather than just providing answers, for important scientific discoveries and phenomena. They also endeavour to promote social engagement across generations and cultures as well as an ethos of lifelong learning. Science Centres are places where construction of meaning takes place, and scientific and technological advances are understood in their appropriate contexts. 26 | BC Higher Education Special | March 2013 GI Student Guide April 2014 12

How does a Science Centre differ from a museum? One of the main roles of a museum is to make, store, study and display collections of cultural and natural history objects. All their displays are designed from the outset to be educational and they are all available for interaction with the public.

Omar Ahmed

Omar Ahmed has done his schooling in the New Indian School, Bahrain and is currently studying Architecture.

The Mind Slide

‘’Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow.’’ - Khalil Gibran, The Prophet Desperate in this labyrinth With doors of a luminous tint Passages structured out of shape Yet also designed for escape The Darkness quickly hides the Light Its ignorance pervades his sight Expulsions of a damaged mind Corrupt images that will blind And distance even more apart, The cause of all, his sleepless heart. His chest like a guitar unstringed, Void of music that it can bring, In his mind’s labyrinth bound, By ignorance of himself, crowned. Yet his heart still echoes in dreams, Longs for them to finally meet. For it has many things to say, Of desires and feverish days. So it still suffers and bewails, Of the day his strong mind was tailed, Before they could be introduced, Living strangers under one roof.

And now, escape from this prison Heats to feverish obsession An escape a necessity Rather than a delicacy With many tainted reflections And ever so sweet seductions Life, a game of snakes and lizards Happiness unreal like wizards A word inside is mirrored screams There is no more air left to breathe Fearful eyes—Tongueless heart—Sealed soul! A speechless love that needs control Maybe his parents have some blame, Of their all-grown child’s broken frame. With his passion and deep feeling Pasted firm beneath his foot’s heeling.

Your Ultimate Interview Guide “Turn your weakness into strengths.”

PRESENTING YOURSELF

Arrive early. Wear something smart that will highlight your personality. Be prepared with some conversation starters related to some news headlines. Make friends with your surrounding environment. Warm up. To establish a good beginning, in a conversation, express with hand gestures and facial expressions. Tell a memorable story about yourself. Don’t wait until the end of a conversation to exchange contact information.

DO’S AND DONT’S OF AN INTERVIEW

Do not wait for the last minute to find out where the interview location is. Locate the place beforehand so that you are on time the day of the interview. Do your research on what job you will be interviewing for. Prepare and practise for the interview. Do dress up smartly and appropriately for the interview. The first impression is the best impression. Do plan to arrive at least ten minutes early. Late arrival is not an excuse.

Do greet the receptionist or assistant with respect. This is where you start making an effort to impress the interviewers. Do not chew gum during the interview. Do fill out the job application neatly and correctly. Do bring extra resumes for the interview. Do not rely on the resume to sell the interview. You play a major role in selling yourself to the interviewer. Do greet the interviewer with the respective title. Do shake hands firmly. Do show enthusiasm in the position of the company. Do make good eye contact. Do not use poor language while giving an interview. Do not ever lie. Answer questions truthfully. Do not answer questions with a simple yes or no. Explain your answers and give examples wherever necessary. Do not answer cell phones during an interview. Do show what you can do for the company.

“Do show enthusiasm in the position of the company.”

It is very common to be nervous during interviews. If you allow yourself to feel nervous, you will do much better. Never be negative. Never talk for more than two minutes continuously. Turn your weakness into strengths. When you are asked a question, think before you answer. A pause before you answer is a trademark of a thoughtful person which is a necessity when working in an organisation.
