SciFest@College Information for Students

What is SciFest@College

SciFest@College is a programme of STEM fairs for second-level students. The fairs take place in 16 regional venues - DkIT, TU Dublin (3 venues: Blanchardstown, Grangegorman and Tallaght), MTU (2 venues: Cork and Tralee), TUS (3 venues: Athlone, Moylish and Thurles), ATU (3 venues: Donegal, Sligo and Galway), SETU (2 venues: Carlow* and Waterford), DCU and St Mary's College Derry.

*Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond their control, SETU Carlow is not in a position to host a SciFest fair in 2023 but will return in 2024.

A SciFest@College fair normally 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.

SciFest fairs are open to all second-level students and are free to enter.

How Do I Enter

Before you start to complete the entry form please make sure to read the Entry Guidelines for Students 2023.

The closing date for receipt of completed entry forms for all SciFest@College 2023 venues is Friday 10 March 2023. You can continue to work on your project until the date of the fair in your chosen venue.

Entry forms for SciFest@College 2023 are now available and may be accessed here.

Please Note

  • Your teacher must have registered on the SciFest@College online entry system before you can complete the entry form.

  • You do not have to complete the entry form in one go; you can save it and return to it later. To do this, click on the Save for later button at the bottom of the form. Clicking on this button opens a new screen which has a link to your entry form - see sample screen here. You must save this link and then, when you want to retrieve your form, click on the link or paste it into your browser's address bar.

  • When you click the Submit Entry button on the entry 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.

  • You must give your teacher a signed Participation Consent and Media Release Form before your entry can be accepted. Ask your teacher for a copy of the form or download it here.

  • After you submit your form your teacher has to log on and confirm your entry, otherwise it will not be accepted for judging. Therefore, you must be certain to tell your teacher that you have submitted your entry form.


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.
