THE STORY:

To donate click on the Orange "Donate" button on the top right corner of this page.

I am honored to be the first Saudi to go to Singularity University, and hoping to learn about future technologies of Energy and Environmental Systems to find new a cheap ways to produce fresh water using solar energy.

Why Singularity University Graduate Program?

There are a lot of reasons why you would support the Singularity University Graduate Program, here are some of my views:

  1. It is a 10 week intensive program (We Eat & Sleep in the University)
  2. It is located inside NASA Ames Research Center.
  3. Thousands of Students apply every year, and only 80 are selected to go there.
  4. They have a Faculty of 65 of the world’s TOP scientists living with us there for the full 10 weeks.
  5. The Program is about interdisciplinary multi cultural thinking.
  6. And my favorite: The objective of the projects we work on during the program is positively impacting the lives of 1,000,000,000 human in 10 Years.
