“The Abu Dhabi Science Festival inspires a spirit of discovery, innovation, and creativity in the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics among the younger generation,” said Sanad Humaid, Adek’s official spokesperson for the science festival.
Students and members of the public are encouraged to attend the event in large numbers and benefit from the knowledge-sharing about the latest creations from young inventors and substantial developments made by the public and private sector in the field of science.
