“Stars of Science” is the leading science show in the Middle East. It features scientists and innovators from the region who are competing for a seed fund that will help them to finance their project. In the 9th season of “Stars of Science,” a Lebanese engineer named Fouad Maksoud is representing Lebanon with his one-of-a-kind invention. His creation is a nano-shielding textile machine that makes clothes water-proof and integrates healing medicine in fabrics. The judges of the show were amazed by this innovation. In the 6th episode of the show, Fouad was competing against two other scientists. Experts tested his machine on a t-shirt and several pairs of socks. Then, some samples were sent to the laboratories of Qatar Environment and Energy Research Institute for further study. The results have shown that indeed, the fabrics are waterproof, breathable, and durable. Dr. Khaled Saoud confirmed that the materials also contain drugs which prove that Fouad’s product can also be used in the medical field. In fact, these drugs intended to treat severe burns, athletic accidents, sores, and skin tears. The jury voted Fouad’s invention as the best in this round. Also, he received a score of 96, which is the highest in the show’s history! You can watch the show on LBC every Saturday at 6 PM and on the
of “Stars of Science.” The finale is on November 25. To note, TV viewers will get the chance to vote for the four finalists via the Stars of Science website the last week of the finals. We wish Fouad the best of luck!
