SciFest 2023

Now SciFest at Fyrishov in Uppsala is over for this year. From September 21st to 23rd, 2023, we had about 6,200 curious visitors. Thank you to all of you who came here! We are also very grateful for all the enthusiastic researchers and exhibitors who participated. And, of course, all the student workers! It's thanks to you that it became a successful science festival!

SciFest is, as the name suggests, a science festival, and it covers all disciplines; from natural science, technology, medicine, pharmacy to humanities and social sciences. Researchers, teachers and students come together with other exhibitors such as high schools and companies, to provide a three-day educational experience including interactive demonstrations, hands-on activities, scientific shows, and engaging scientific lectures. SciFest invites pupils, teachers and the general public to experience some hands-on research and science. 

The goal of the festival is to show the visitors the many aspects of research and science, and to make them interested in learning more about the different subjects, such as programming, psychology, chemistry, anthropology etc.

SciFest consists of a large variety of activities. The quintessence of SciFest is the bookable workshops. During Thursday and Friday, teachers can book workshops for their classes, and the workshops are held by researchers from Uppsala University and SLU, company representatives or senior high school students. 

There are also a lot of non-stop activities at SciFest, where visitors are welcome to stop by without any advance booking. On Saturday however, all activities are non-reservable and open for all.
