SCIFEST 2020

We are delighted that our Science Department are facilitating Scifest 2020 in Coláiste Abbáin with 1st Year students in May. 

How SciFest Benefits Students

SciFest:

  • it is locally based and there is no entry fee, making it highly accessible and inclusive

  • encourages students to develop an interest in science through an inquiry-based approach and hands-on activities

  • helps students to grow in confidence and develop their communication skills by exhibiting their work in a small, local, student-friendly environment

  • encourages students of all abilities and backgrounds to participate, lowering barriers and bringing the talents of diverse populations into the innovation pipeline

  • encourages and supports the greater participation of girls in STEM education

  • provides students with an opportunity to engage in activities that link science, maths, engineering and technology to their everyday lives and to society

  • provides students with an opportunity to visit their local third-level college, view the facilities and learn about the courses available, encouraging them to continue their STEM education into third-level

  • supports the inquiry-based, problem-solving approach promoted by the science and maths curriculum in second-level schools, thus improving students’ opportunities to achieve academic success
