The Sentinus Young Innovators Competition

The Sentinus Young Innovators competition is an annual event designed to celebrate the achievements of young people in the areas of science and technology and to raise public awareness and support of these disciplines. The event comprises of exhibitions of science and technology project work from schools in the primary and secondary sectors in Northern Ireland. In recent years more than 500 students between the ages of 8 and 18 years have participated.

Each year Intel Ireland sponsors the prize for the competition's technology category. The winners of this category, along with their teacher, receive an all expenses paid trip to America to compete in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in May.

SciFest is a series of one-day science fairs for second-level students hosted locally in schools and at regional level in the Institutes of Technology. The SciFest project consists of four distinct strands – local, regional, national and international. The aim of the project is to encourage a love of science, technology and maths through active, collaborative, inquiry-based learning and to provide a forum for students at local, regional and national level to present and display their scientific investigations.

The main sponsors of Scifest are Intel Ireland and Discover Science and Engineering along with a number of other partners. The Overall Scifest national winning project receives an all expenses paid trip to America to compete in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in May.

Centre for Talented Youth Ireland – Intel Engineering Program

Intel has come together with the Centre for Talented Youth Ireland (CTYI) to introduce a pilot program which invites female students aged between 14 and 17 to participate in weekly engineering based classes which are facilitated through the Centre’s existing structure. The CTYI is the only organisation in Ireland providing challenging academic programmes for young people with high ability. The Centre, which is based in Dublin City University, runs enrichment courses in subject areas ordinarily unavailable at school. This Intel supported initiative is an important way to introduce young females to the world of engineering and the opportunities associated with careers in this area.
