Today Intel Ireland launched the Mini Scientist competition for 2014.
The Intel Mini Scientist Exhibition is a competition for Primary school students in which they develop science related projects which are then exhibited at fairs held within their own schools. Winning projects selected at this school level exhibition then go on to take part in the Mini Scientist Grand Final event.
The competition, which is open to 4th, 5th and 6th class students, supports the Primary Science curriculum and is a great way to encourage enthusiasm and practical learning in the area of science.
In 2013, 5,100 students took part in Mini Scientist from 14 different counties with 85 different schools taking part.
There are a number of fantastic prizes available to participating schools:
– Every school taking part receives a special science pack with prizes that can be used in the classroom as well as a commemorative plaque
– Every student taking part receives a goody bag and certificate
– Every member of the winning project teams receives science related prizes
– There is a €1000 monetary grant for the school which has the overall Grand final winning project
