Abu Dhabi Technology Development Committee (TDC) urged the residents to join the show with their unique science projects and get connected with fellow enthusiasts.
The event is open to anyone interested in displaying their work, sharing ideas and networking.
"The Innovator Show is aimed at celebrating the growing innovation talent that exists in the UAE. Through the event, we aim to fuel collaboration and to challenge others to create and innovate," said Majid Al Mail, senior manager and head of the Innovator programme.
Participants can feature their projects from art and design to automotive, mechanics, digital fabrication, robotics and electronics to aerospace or sustainability and life sciences.
