Sesame Street characters help kids in Abu Dhabi "Reach for the Sky"

More than 6,000 children so far have turned out for the "Reach for the Sky" project during the month of Ramadan in Abu Dhabi, co-sponsored by Sesame Street, the Emirates News Agency said this week (Sept. 2). The public TV characters interacted with the kids for the science-based outreach. "We noticed the children's enthusiasm to learn more about outer space while watching them working hard on making their own rockets and assembling and operating robots," said Dr. Abdullah Ismail Abdullah, Senior Advisor to the Emirates Foundation for Philanthropy science, technology and environment program, which runs nightly at the Marina Mall Abu Dhabi throughout the Islamic holy month.
