SciFest National Final 2020

SciFest National Final 2020

Welcome to the SciFest 2020 National Final in Association with Science Foundation Ireland

This year’s SciFest National Final is going virtual. It will take place on a specially designed online platform from Thursday 19 November to Saturday 21 November. We are very excited to be able to welcome not only students, teachers and parents to this inspiring showcase of young people’s research but also, for the first time, the general public.

The platform will be live from Monday 16 November to Friday 27 November providing an opportunity for the public to view the finalists’ projects, vote for their favourite project in the STEM Outreach Award and test their scientific knowledge in daily competitions.

More information about the full programme, which will include a mix of live and pre-recorded sessions, will be shared in the coming days and weeks.

About the SciFest 2020 National Final

In SciFest, second-level students showcase STEM projects at a series of one-day STEM fairs traditionally held locally in schools (SciFest@School) and regionally at 16 venues in the Institutes of Technology, TU Dublin, DCU and St Mary’s College, Derry (SciFest@College). This year SciFest@College took place online to a resounding success.

At the National Final qualifying award winners from the 16 regional SciFest@College STEM fairs will compete for a range of valuable prizes including the opportunity to participate in a number of international STEM events. The National Final will also include special competitions for selected winners of the Boston Scientific Medical Devices Award and of the Specsavers Making a Difference Award at the regional fairs. The winner(s) of the SciFest National Final 2020 will receive a trophy and €3,000, and will go on to represent Ireland at the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) 2021 in the United States.
