At SciFest, you have the chance to present your research to school students and the general public. You can count on many questions and exciting discussions. All you need is an interesting and fun activity - and judging from earlier years researchers in Uppsala are creative! You will get help from the SciFest team develop you activity.

Uppsala University and SLU will arrange SciFest in Fyrishov, Uppsala, 21-23 September. Before the pandemic, the science festival had about 8,500 visitors.

The aim of SciFest is to awaken young people's curiosity and create a desire to understand and find out more - hopefully some of them are future students at Uppsala University or SLU. It is a fantastic opportunity for you to meet people from outside academia - meetings that will give you both energy and new ideas. It is a really good way for universities to contribute to society. Many research groups return to the festival year after year.

Participation builds on enthusiastic researchers and doctoral students, an interesting activity and something that will attract people to your stand. Think about how you can present your research with the help of games, experiments, quizzes, competitions or other activities where visitors can touch, smell, listen and experience. How can the visitors contribute? Maybe they can make/build something or vote on something?
