SciFest Dubai may be exactly what it sounds like: a festival celebrating science in Dubai. But there’s more to it than that; there’s a whole rationale and methodology to think about. SciFest Dubai aims to celebrate science through the arts, in order to improve scientific literacy.
“If you look around you, there’s a lot of people who are intimidated by science,” explains festival co-founder Rohan Roberts. “That’s because of how it was taught in high school.”
For many, science is a huge, boring body of information that you have to memorize for a test. The goal of Roberts, and the festival, is to re-think science as a way of being in the world, a way of thinking.
