SciFest's Mission Statement
SciFest’s mission is to provide an inclusive and accessible platform for students in Irish schools to explore the STEM disciplines in an investigative way and to present their findings to a wider audience, thus supporting the development of key skills, including critical thinking, problem-solving, communication and collaboration.
- SciFest aims to encourage a love of science, technology, engineering and mathematics through active, collaborative, inquiry-based learning
- SciFest aims to be highly accessible to its target audience by being locally and regionally based and by being free to enter
- SciFest aims to create a structure, including a diversified funding stream, capable of sustaining the ongoing expansion and development of the project
SciFest's Strategic Plan 2014-2018 was developed to chart the way forward for SciFest to achieve its stated aims. A copy of the plan may be downloaded here.
