SciFest, first held here in 2006, has been a national (and cross-border) event since 2008, with science fairs running in 15 colleges, including Institutes of Technology, DCU, and Magee College.
Regional winners go on to a National Final, with the Winner of that going to Intel's ISEF (International Science and Engineering Fair, to be held in Los Angeles in 2017). Read more on last Friday's success on our News page: http://www.it-tallaght.ie/index.cfm/page/newsarchive/id/478
SciFest is one of the biggest of the Institute's activities to promote STEM subjects in our region, and - as well as receiving financial support from the Institute - involves a huge volunteer effort from dozens of academic, technical, administrative, and support staff.
SciFest @ ITT Dublin is one of the biggest of the SciFest fairs every year ... results like this also show that it continues to attract some of the best second-level investigators.
