SciFest @ CCS
On Thursday, more than 160 students from Transition Year will exhibit 60 projects in Carrigaline Community School’s SciFest@School science fair.
Projects on display will include Bubbletastic and EleCITRUSity – we can’t wait to see these!
SciFest is a series of one-day science fairs, funded primarily by Science Foundation Ireland’s (SFI) Discover programme, Intel and Boston Scientific. It is also supported by a number of other companies and organisations.
SciFest@School is where a second-level school hosts their own in-house SciFest science fair. SciFest@School was introduced in 2011 and there has been strong demand from schools to participate – 57 schools participated in 2015/16. SciFest@School is the first strand of the SciFest programme. Second-level students can also participate in SciFest@College in their local Institute of Technology or in DCU. Winners from these fairs go on to compete in a national final each November for the chance to represent Ireland at science fairs in the USA and the Netherlands.
Best of luck to all involved!
