What is SciFest
SciFest is a science festival where the meeting between researchers and young people is at the center. The participants will learn more about our research with the help of games, experiments, quizzes or other activities where visitors can touch, smell, listen and experience. At most SciFest has had 8500 visitors.
The first two days of the festival are dedicated to school pupils and teachers. On the final day, SciFest opens its doors to the general public.
Who can participate?
You and your colleagues of course! SciFest is an opportunity to communicate both research and Environmental analysis. 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 to develop you activity. It is important, especially for the younger kids, that someone in the activity can speak and understand Swedish.
Two types of activities
- Unbookable non-stop activity, surface2x3m, furnishing one table and two chairs, at least one wall
- Bookable workshop, surface 5x6m, furnishing two tables and 16 chairs, two or three walls
