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 2021
We are excited to share that the Intel Mini Scientist will return this year with a revised format! Students from 4th, 5th and 6th class will be invited to create science projects, via a workbook, with each school getting to select a winning project that will go forward to a virtual judging process. The selected projects will be reviewed by a panel of judges, which will include Intel employees, and a number of winners will be selected. The winning projects will be invited to participate in a virtual awards ceremony later this year where the overall grand prize will be awarded. The grand prize includes €1000 for the school of the winning project. The competition kicks off in September 2021.
2021 Registration now closed.
