1- THE PALESTININAN SCIENCE FESTIVAL
Launched in 2010 for the first time, the Palestinian Science Festival is an innovative idea developed through the combined efforts of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MoEHE), Al Nayzak for Supportive Education & Scientific Innovation, the Consulate General of France in Jerusalem and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The festival is an opportunity for partnerships with Universities such as An-Najah University, Al Quds University, and Palestine Polytechnic University.
The lack of knowledge about the use of science in our everyday life prevents people from relating to the application and value of science. Thus, the festival is an important space to motivate younger generations to learn and be inspired by successful Palestinian, Arab and international role models in the fields of science and technology. The Palestinian Science Festival is a platform for exchanging experiences, scientific and industrial skills between Palestinians working in the field of science, and an opportunity to create linkages between schools and universities.
2- SCIENCE DAYS PALESTINE FESTIVAL
“Science Days Palestine” is the largest scientific festival held in Palestine and organized by “Goethe-Institute”, the French-German Cultural Center, Al Nayzak and A.M. Qattan Foundation (AMQF). This scientific celebration takes place in several Palestinian areas (Jerusalem, Gaza, The West Bank and Palestine 1948 lands). The Festival also hosts the “Science Film Festival” showing films in different subjects and for various age groups. The films are accompanied with activities under a special theme each year.
