SciFest Dubai is the first science festival of its kind in the city of Dubai. The aim is to celebrate science through the arts – through drama, poetry, music, fashion, literature, and also through workshops stage shows, debates, panel discussions, quizzes, story-telling and much more. The inaugural event took place in February 2014. Over 13,000 people attended the four-day festival that was covered by BBC World in addition to local press, radio, and television. The aim of SciFest is to promote STEAM Education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics). We believe science and the scientific method are paramount for the success of our species. Which is why we aim to educate everyone about science: you don’t have to be a scientist to love science.
