"The journey of the virtual camp reflects TDRA's orientation in adopting the latest techniques to develop its projects and initiatives. In its beginnings, the Camp required physical attendance but has shifted to virtual attendance and virtual laboratories in the previous two sessions, by utilizing the advanced infrastructure of the UAE's telecommunications sector, and today, the Camp enters a new chapter: the metaverse. In this year's edition, our children will live a completely different experience, as they will have the opportunity to give the future of the Internet a go and test its boundless potential firsthand. We were keen in this year’s edition to provide the younger generation with the latest information and know-hows in an innovative environment, to play a part in a brighter tomorrow for our beloved UAE.”
