Today's students are tomorrow's leaders, and since the Bibliotheca Alexandrina aims to be a center of excellence for the production and dissemination of knowledge, it has been the Library’s goal to encourage youth to interact with their communities and solve the problems they encounter. The Micro Research Grants program introduces a sustainable culture of invention to schools and communities with the aim of empowering students to explore their interests in science, technology, engineering, and math during high school.
