Science and Tech Fair

The Science and Tech Fair

Science & Tech Fair will be Africa’s version of the Intel® International Science and Engineering Fair® (Intel ISEF). Intel ISEF is the most premiered science competition in the world, exclusively for students. It is the world’s largest international science competition, which annually provides a forum for more than 1,500 high school students from about 70 countries to showcase their science and technology projects.

Our vision is to allow the scientists of tomorrow shine and showcase their original, innovative science, engineering and/or technology projects. It is a competition where students present their scientific project results in the form of a report, display board or models that they have created. Students are urged to use the complete scientific method to answer a question that will help solve global challenges.

Science and Tech Fair allows enthusiastic science students to proudly showcase their research and science/technology projects in a fun, educational manner. It also provides a platform for students to represent their school and their home country at the international level!
