Do It Yourselfers and innovators have a new platform to train, demonstrate their creations and bounce ideas off those with similar interests.
The Abu Dhabi Technology Development Committee, the government organisation responsible for supporting the development of science, technology and innovation, is hosting workshops for DIYers. The sessions are being conducted to prepare participants for their showcase at the first two-day Innovator event to be held from March 7 in Abu Dhabi.
Innovator 2014 will feature DIY projects and prototypes by resident creators, and will include activities for visitors. Homegrown creations by inventors in the fields of science, technology, engineering and art will be on display.
Organisers are inviting innovators to sign up for the opportunity to feature their work at the event. Participants can be individuals, special interest groups, academic institutions or hobbyists that tinker, create, invent, build, design and develop.
