SciFest@School Information for Teachers

SciFest@School Information for Teachers

Information on this page relates to SciFest@School STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) fairs only, that is, in-house STEM fairs hosted by the schools themselves. For information on SciFest@College fairs, which are regional fairs for second-level students hosted by third level colleges, please follow this link.


The SciFest@School level of the SciFest programme had over 70 schools participating in 2017/2018. SciFest@School is where a second-level school hosts their own in-house SciFest STEM fair. Resource materials to support the organisation of a SciFest@School fair are available in the resources section of this website. In addition to the resource materials support from SciFest is also available in the form of advice on the organisation of a SciFest@School STEM fair, certificates for participating students, a number of prizes for winning projects, 'freebies' and support on the day of the event - contact us for details.

. SciFest@School STEM fairs can be held at any time during the school year. However, you should hold your fair before 8 March if you wish to use your SciFest@School fair to select projects to go forward to SciFest@College 2019. While participating in a SciFest@School fair is good preparation for participating in a SciFest@College it is not a requirement; students may enter a SciFest@College directly without having participated in a SciFest@School fair.
