The Intel® Mini Scientist is a competition for Primary school students that challenges them to develop science related projects that are exhibited at fairs within their own schools. Winning projects selected at this school level exhibition then go on to take part in the Mini Scientist Regional Final event with the possibility of continuing on to the Grand Final. The competition, which is open to 4th, 5th, and 6th class students, supports the Primary Science curriculum. It’s a great way to encourage enthusiasm and practical learning in the area of science.
In 2019, over 7,200 students participated in Mini Scientist from 18 different counties with a total of 105 different schools taking part.
We are excited to share that the Intel Mini Scientist will return this year as an in-person competition. Students from 4th, 5th, and 6th class will be invited to create science projects that will be exhibited in your school.
Intel judges will endeavour to visit schools to see your projects, chat to students and ultimately select a winning project to move forward to the next phase.
To encourage students to see that science and technology is all around us, and can be fun and exciting.
To encourage practical investigation into how, what and why things work the way they do.
To foster a strong interest about science in students before they take on the Junior Cert curriculum in secondary school.
To allow students to demonstrate their experience of completing their project and the knowledge gained to the rest of their school.
