SciFest is, as the name suggests, a science festival, combining the three disciplinary domains of the University.
Researchers, teachers and students from all parts of the University come together with 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.

Welcome to participate as an exhibitor at the scientific festival SciFest 7-9 March 2019!
It is time to start thinking about SciFest 2019! We hope that you want to join as an exhibitor and present your research!
WHAT IS SCIFEST?
SciFest is an activity where scientists from all scientific fields, companies and organizations can meet and present their research. The target group is mainly children and young people and the purpose is to raise the interest in science, attract more students to Uppsala University and to visualize the work done at the university.
WHO IS VISTING SCIFEST?
SciFest 2019 takes place on 7-9th of March at Fyrishov. Thursdays and Fridays are open for schools - from lower secondary school to high school - while the program on Saturday is open to the public.
Since SciFest aims to a young public we strongly encourage that at least one person in each stall should be able to speak Swedish.
WHAT HAPPENS AT SCIFEST?
Last year, SciFest offered 69 different exhibitions and a full-featured stage program with Science Slam, lectures and a physics / laser show. Due to the young target group, we recommend that the activities have an interactive design. We hope you want to participate so that we can jointly complete the 2018 program with a wide range of program items.
