A massive family science festival is happening in Dubai

If your young ones are into cool, live science experiences and wow-worthy technological innovations, they’re going to love this upcoming event.

Dubai’s biggest National Science, Technology and Innovation Festival is taking place daily from 4pm-10pm – starting January 31 and running until February 4.

Kids will get to meet star YouTuber and Vine star Zach King on stage for some one-on-one time with the magic video celebrity.

They can also take part in different workshops, including the Nikon kids’ photo club, chocolate-making with Mirzam, LEGO brick-building, paper quilling, Dumye doll-making, Arabic ar.timeoutdubai.com stamp-crafting and more.

Little ones will also live the adventure at the Aventura Play area, which will have loads of surprises in line with the science theme.

Foodies are sure to find their favourite treats with tonnes of food trucks available. Plus, young athletes will get moving at the sports zone, where they can climb some walls, jump on the trampoline and have a laugh at the human soccer table.

The Science Festival’s outdoor cinema will be playing family movies, and those who would like a more immersive experience can head to the VR zone.

Mums and dads will find a selection of home-grown products at the bazaar before joining the kiddies at the maze – we’ll see who completes the seven challenges first and wins.

From free concerts, a talent show and live cooking demos, to some seriously cool edutainment activities, check out the National Science, Technology and Innovation Festival for UAE students’ contributions to the future and a fun day out.
