Director General of TDC, Ahmed Saeed Al Calily, said: "Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) is core to our nation’s future as a knowledge based economy and it is vital that we inspire our young people to pursue careers in STI-related subjects so that it is embedded in the fabric of society. Science festivals are a global best practice format of science popularization, and the success and popularity of ADSF proves there is a thirst for such knowledge in the UAE. As a result, ADSF 2014 will reach out even further into the community than ever before, building on a rich record of success of igniting the interest of our youth in STI and I invite the youth and the families of the UAE to attend this educational extravaganza."
