SciFest 2023  has a Competition Call for Entries with this year’s competition theme to focus on climate action.

SciFest Ireland is largest and most inclusive STEM fair programme for second-level students.

The competition attracts 10,000 student participants annually and organisers have kicked off the 2023 competition with a call for entrants to regional fairs around the country. Since launching in 2008, more than 90,000 students have participated in the competition.

This year features a new  ‘Climate and Delivering Cleaner Energy Future’ award at this year’s regional fairs and at the SciFest National Final.

In SciFest, second-level students showcase STEM projects at a series of one-day science fairs held locally in schools and regionally at venues in the Technological Universities, Dundalk Institute of Technology, DCU and St. Mary’s College, Derry. The winners from each regional STEM fair will go on to compete at the National Final in November 2023. The winner(s) of the SciFest National Final 2023 will be presented with a trophy and will represent Ireland at the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles, California next year.
