The Shenzhen 2018 Youth Science and Art Festival was unveiled at Shenzhen Children’s Palace on November 10 and will run through December, kicking off a two-month grand feast of science and art for teenagers.
The festival is organized by Shenzhen Children’s Palace and Shenzhen Children’s Museum of Science and Technology and has been held four times before, receiving a warm welcome from local teenagers. It aims at enabling kids to enjoy the charm of science and art and inspire them in these two fields.
