Crown Prince’s wife created STREAM initiative ilmi launched in Saudi Arabia

The launching of ilmi, a new Centre for Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STREAM) learning, created by Princess Sara Bint Mashhour, wife of Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, has been announced Saturday.
ilmi (“My Knowledge” in Arabic) will be a fully accessible Science Discovery and Innovation Centre that inspires and empowers young people across Saudi Arabia to explore and create, as well as to tackle challenges hands-on.

A philanthropic, non-government initiative incubated and supported by the Mohammed Bin Salman Foundation Misk as one of its subsidiaries, ilmi will operate in partnership with Mohammed Bin Salman Nonprofit City.

Princess Sara said: “ilmi will be a beacon of creativity, learning and accessibility. It will offer all Saudi Arabia’s young and lifelong learners the ability to realize their potential, further drive advances in the Kingdom, and help shape the future. Together, I hope that we will all create ilmi, and inspire and support our next generation.”

At ilmi’s core is a unique approach that seeks to project a detailed, quality picture of how young people across Saudi Arabia best connect with STREAM subjects.

Using this information, together with its young audience and alongside parents, teachers, learning experts, employers, scientists, creative individuals, and entrepreneurs, ilmi will co-create a regularly refreshed program of STREAM content, ensuring that its offering remains relevant to young people as their needs evolve.

Located in Mohammed Bin Salman Nonprofit City in Riyadh and opening in 2025, the ilmi center spans 27,000 square meters and reflects the city’s goals to embody creativity and sustainability through integration in its natural surroundings and extensive landscaping, and make use of natural light.

Planned permanent exhibitions will be based around three core themes, Our World, Our Selves, and Our Inventions, and will focus on issues including space, ecosystems and AI.

The center will also host a variety of installations, events, talks, performances and learning partner programs designed to build a new STREAM community in Saudi Arabia.

ilmi will offer an integrated digital platform combined with a series of pop-up learning experiences across Saudi Arabia.

These will start to go live this summer and aim to get young people, parents, families and friends of all ages and abilities excited and engaged in STREAM before ilmi’s physical home opens.

Launching soon, ilmi’s online offering will feature a series of exciting, gamified design challenges that explore key STREAM concepts, connect them to real life, and invite participants to come up with creative responses as part of a competition.

To support this initiative, ilmi will also hold a series of live activations that will explore the STREAM content behind each digital challenge and encourage families and friends to work together to create and build solutions live.
