The festival will be held on the Abu Dhabi Corniche alongside Innovator 2019, an annual exhibition and competition open to local inventors of all ages wishing to showcase their unique projects in the categories of Art & Design, Sustainability & Life Science, Aerospace, Automotive, Mechanics, & Digital Fabrication, Robotics & Electronics.

Both activities are organized by the Department of Education and Knowledge, which is targeting young audiences across the UAE in a fun way to inspire the new generation. The goal is to engage them in a way that promotes inventiveness and creative thinking.

Sanad Ahmed, deputy chairman of the Innovation Committee at The Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (ADEK), said the aim for the ADSF 2019 installment was to ‘go bigger’ with a number of  young artists and musicians who can showcase their talents and pieces in terms of drawings, music, and playing instruments.

“ADSF 2019 will showcase exciting, engaging and educational activities for school trips at the morning and for the whole family during the evenings.”

Also this year, ADSF will stand out as a unique event that contributes to the competency of a new generation of innovators in the STEAM fields (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics), promotes community interest and creates a new culture of innovation by also ensuring a memorable educational experience for visitors and participants, said ADEK chairman Dr Ali Al Nuaimi. (“ADEK’s focus on promoting innovation and discovery especially among young learners.”) ADEK has worked closely with the Edinburgh International Science Festival to design and develop the content of ADSF 2019.
