on a Scientific Journey


The UAE’s National Archives informed the students of Ras Al Khaimah Girls Center, an affiliate of the General Authority of Youth & Sports Welfare, of pages of the UAE’s history in order to enhance loyalty and belonging to the Nation and strengthen national identity.
Mrs. Ouhod Al Mazroui, Trips Supervisor at the Ras Al Khaimah Girls Center, expressed her sincere thanks to the National Archives for the academic benefit the girls had gained, which would increase their patriotism. She also said that they were grateful for the attention they received from the specialists and all the concerned persons and praised the National Archives’ technological advancement and its role in preserving the memory of the Nation.
The students took a tour in the National Archives starting from Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Virtual Reality Theatre where they watched a Hi-Tech 3D film about the UAE’s history, its present and future. Then, they visited Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Hall and browsed written documents, historical photographs and maps. They also visited the Emirates Library, which has thousands of hard and soft copies of sources, references and general books. The visitors acquainted themselves with the extent of benefit they would get from the library in their academic researches.
The students attended a lecture entitled “The Historical and Political Status of the UAE Islands Occupied before the Establishment of the Union” delivered by the National Archives in Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Auditorium to educate them about the Nation’s vital issues. The lecture discussed the historical background of the three islands in a way that enhances the historical and geographical understanding of this issue. The lecture focused on the history of the three islands: Abu Musa and Greater and Lesser Tunbs in addition to the significant historical facts on which the UAE depends to prove its rightful title to the islands.
The National Archives used to receive such academic visits due to its important role as a national historical and research institution that harbor historical documents that monitor the country’s historical eras. These visits come within the context of extending the academic cooperation between the National Archives and the educational activities centers and academic institutions inside and outside the UAE, which are looking forward to enhancing knowledge of the UAE’s history.
