More information in Swedish

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. 

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, be it 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, 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.
