Not-For-Profit Information

SciFest’s main object is: To promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education through the provision of a forum for students at local/regional/national level to present and display their scientific investigations.

The SciFest programme consists of a series of one-day STEM fairs for second-level students. SciFest was set up to encourage an interest in, and love of, the STEM subjects. Being organised locally and regionally and being completely free to both students and schools It is designed to be as inclusive and accessible as possible. The programme is implemented at four levels: locally in schools, regionally in third level colleges, a national STEM fair for winners from the regional fairs, with winners from the national fair going on to represent Ireland at international events.

The programme is now in its 19th year and participation continues to increase. In the current academic year it is anticipated that approximately 14,000 second-level students will take part and that approximately 140 schools will participate in the local level, with over 200 schools bringing students to the regional fairs.
