Rooftop Garden & Weather Station

Our students' journey began this time last year with a project presented in the Qatar Sustainability Competition. The ISL Qatar team then won a cash prize which provided the budget to actually create their vision.

We have now gone full circle and the garden is thriving! Sponsorship will be sought to further expand the roof garden. If your company would be interested in sponsoring this innovative ISL Qatar project, please contact Mr Nidsjo: rnidsjo@islqatar.org

In addition, weather and air quality stations have been added to the school grounds and are providing data to the world weather and air quality services.

ISL Qatar is currently registered with three data collection sites for weather, listed below. We also post hourly weather data through our @ISLQatarWeather Twitter feed.
