The judging of projects at a SciFest@College event is undertaken by members of the college staff, employees of local industries and other suitably qualified individuals.

If you are interested in being involved in the judging at your local SciFest@College event please download and complete the judges' registration form. Completing the form does not commit you to be available for a particular STEM fair; it merely indicates your willingness to act as a judge if you are available and it is convenient for you to do so.

Further information on judging at SciFest may be accessed here or contact us for further details.

SciFest's mission is to provide an inclusive and accessible platform for students in Irish second-level 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.

The SciFest programme consists of four levels: Local (SciFest@School); Regional (SciFest@College); National (SciFest National Final); International (SciFest@Regeneron ISEF, SciFest@Broadcom MASTERS and SciFest@GYSTB, the Hong Kong Global Youth Science and Technology Bowl).

In SciFest@College DkIT, TU Dublin (3 venues: Grangegorman, Blanchardstown and Tallaght), MTU (2 venues: Cork and Tralee), TUS (3 venues: Athlone, Limerick and Thurles), SETU (2 venues: Carlow and Waterford), ATU (3 venues: Donegal, Sligo and Galway), DCU and St Mary's College, Derry, host one-day SciFest STEM fairs which are open to all second-level students. A SciFest fair consists of a competition and exhibition of projects, a prize-giving ceremony, and may also include a selection of science talks, science demonstrations in the college laboratories and advice on careers in STEM. The fact that the programme is regionally based and has open and free entry ensures that SciFest is both accessible and inclusive.
