Abu Dhabi, October 24, 2017 - The Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (ADEK) has confirmed that 40 per cent of the 71 exciting and educational activities lined up for the upcoming 7th Abu Dhabi Science Festival (ADSF) it is organizing under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, will involve local organizations.

The annual ADSF has grown into the region's biggest science festival thanks to the support of the strategic sponsors and numerous organizations and companies in Abu Dhabi fully supportive of ADEK's advocacy of inspiring innovation and discovery among youths. There will be a total of 29 locally-prepared events for this year's edition running from November 9 to 18, 2017 geared towards attracting interest in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

Among the local entities involved in ADSF 2017's events are the Emirates Foundation, CR8 Robotics, New York University Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi Distribution Company, Iftah Ya Simsim-Bidaya Media, Takamul Academy for Talented Children, The New England Center for Children, Al Sadeem Astronomy, Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority, Spacetoon International FZ-LLC, Abu Dhabi University, Edith Cowan University, the Family Development Foundation, Tiny Dreams Nursery, Paris Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi, the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment, and Sharjah Children's Centres.

Engineer Sanad Humaid Ahmed, Deputy Chairman of the Innovation Committee and ADEK's Knowledge Management Acting Division Manager, said: “The support of local companies and organizations has been instrumental to the sustained success of the ADSF. We would like to extend our appreciation to the 20 distinguished locally-based organizations and companies that have generously shared their time, effort and expertise to ensure a memorable and highly productive experience for students this year. Their participation helps add local dimensions to the festival, while nurturing the nation's future scientists and technologists with STEM related learnings.”

The ADEK is organizing the 7th annual Abu Dhabi Science Festival in collaboration with major government and private entities such as Dolphin Energy (Presenting Sponsor), Mubadala and Emirates Transport (Affiliate Sponsors), Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (Content Sponsor), Abu Dhabi Media (Exclusive Media Partner), Marina Mall and Dalma Mall (Mall Partners) and several local universities.
