Science Festivity 2009 at the BA

Posted on

Alexandria—Under the auspices of the Egyptian Ministry of Petroleum and the Egyptian Ministry of Education, the BA is organizing the Third Science Festivity, from 1 to 3 April 2009. The Science Festivity is a huge public event that gives science a presence in the community and offers people of all ages and backgrounds the opportunity to question, discuss, and explore.

The overarching theme of the Science Festivity 2009 is “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 will also get the chance to attend the previously parallel lectures and presentations in the same location.

The Science Village will be at the BA Plaza on 1 and 2 April 2009 from 9:30 to 16:30 hrs; and at the Antoniadis Gardens on 3 April 2009 from 13:00 to 18:00 hrs. Visitors of the Science Village will experience the pleasure of lifelong learning by participating in the various activities offered. A concert by the Egyptian band “Masar Egbary” will also be organized on 2 April 2009.
