Mini Scientist Competition
The Intel® Mini Scientist competition gives primary school students the opportunity to explore science and technology through project based learning and exhibitions.
The Mini Scientist Competition
We are back!
We are thrilled to announce 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 which 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.
The winning projects will then be invited to participate in a Grand Final event where the overall Mini Scientist will be awarded. The grand prize includes €1000 for the school of the winning project.
The Application Process Is Now Closed
