Youm al-Ilm

The Consulate General organized jointly with the Association of Algerian American Scientists (AASA) a ceremony on Saturday April 15, 2017 for young community members to celebrate Youm El-Ilm (the day of knowledge). The celebration ceremony started by providing a short biography of Chikh Abdelhamid Ben Badis and his reformation movement presented by young participants in the event. This event was also an opportunity to introduce some prominent Algerian American scientists who were extremely successful in the field of scientific research to provide a source of inspiration to our students and young researchers. In order to promote young political leadership, the Consulate General organized as part of the activities a voting simulation to explain how voting is organized in polling stations and the process of running for elections as candidates.
