What is SciFest@College

SciFest@College is a programme of STEM fairs for second-level students. The fairs take place in 16 regional venues - the 11 Institutes of Technology, TU Dublin (Blanchardstown, Kevin St and Tallaght), DCU and St Mary's College Derry. 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 and courses available in the college. The fairs are open to all second-level students and are free to enter.

Privacy and Data Protection

Your privacy is very important to us. Please click here to see what information we collect about you and why we collect it.

Because of new data protection regulations you will need to have your parent's/guardian's permission to enter SciFest this year if you are under 18. You can download a permission form here or ask your teacher for a copy. When you have the form completed please return it to your teacher for safekeeping.

How Do I Enter

Before you start to complete the entry form please make sure to read the Guidelines for Online Entrants- Students.

Entries to SciFest@College 2020 will open at the end of January. Until then you can see a sample entry form here. This form cannot be submitted but can be printed out for practice.

The closing date for entries to SciFest@College 2020 is Friday 6 March.


Please Note

When entries go live at the end of January, once you click the Submit Entry button on the form, you cannot get the form back, so it's probably a good idea to have it checked by an adult before you submit it.

After you submit your form your teacher has to log on and confirm your entry, otherwise it will not be sent to the SciFest@College venue.Therefore, you must be certain to tell your teacher that you have submitted your entry form.

It is expected that all entries to SciFest@College 2020 will be submitted online. In the event that this presents a particular difficulty ask your teacher to contact your local SciFest@College venue for advice. In that event you must familiarise yourself with the relevant guidelines.
