SciFest includes an exhibition and competition of projects produced by second-level students and hosted by their local Institute of Technology. It is a national event which aims to encourage a love of science and provide an opportunity for students to display their scientific discoveries. The projects cover a broad span of areas including physical sciences, computer science, social sciences, technology/engineering and health sciences. The Institute will also provide a prize-giving ceremony and other activities for the students such as lectures and demonstrations. Each student may enter only one project but a school may enter a number of projects.
