Science Festivity 2009
01 April 2009 - 03 April 2009

 Under the auspices of the Egyptian Ministry of Petroleum, and in cooperation with the Egyptian Ministry of Education, the Bibliotheca Alexandrina (BA) organized the Third Science Festivity, 1-3 April 2009.
The overarching theme of the Science Festivity 2009 was “Energy”, the most pressing challenge of the 21st century. The hub of the Science Festivity is the Science Village, which hosts a large diversity of hands-on and interactive exhibits, in addition to the always intriguing Super Science Show. This year, visitors of the Science Village got the chance to attend the previously parallel lectures and presentations in the same location.

On the first two days, the Science Festivity took place at the BA; it included the science village, the "Science Café", the Super Science Show, documentaries and tours in the PSC. In addition, the Egyptian band “Massar Egbary” gave a wonderful performance at the BA plaza in the evening of 2 April, which was a blast. On 3 April, the science village moved to Antoniadis Gardens.
