KUWAIT, Feb 18- The 23rd annual auto mechanics and traffic systems contest began here Tuesday with the event being organized by Kuwait Scientific Club and the Ministry of Interior.
Head of the contest’s organizing committee Khaled Al-Hassan said in a press release that the contest, launched in 1987, will gather over 2,000 high-school students from 91 schools across the country.
The contest aims at involving students in the fields of mechanics and traffic systems and encourage them to use intuition and intellect, said Al-Hassan.
The auto mechanics and traffic systems contest is an event where young adults try to use their skills in both fields to come up with new inventive ways to deal with vehicles and traffic problems.
The event also acts as a gathering to spread awareness on traffic regulations and basic mechanical skills for students who are nearing the legal age to obtain driving licenses.
Competitions will be held next March at both boys and girls schools with results announced April of this year.
