Scifest Africa, South Africa's National Sciecne Festival, has a single-minded mission: to enhance and deepen young South African’s passion for the sciences – encompassing Physical Science, Natural Science, Mathematics, Engineering, Technology and Chemistry. We achieve that by creating real-world learning experiences for youngsters, providing the spark that will ignite their passion and give them the energy to take it further....and to achieve beyond their wildest expectations, not just for themselves but for their community and country.

We know that, to remain globally competitive, we need more scientists in the future. Our aim is to make science accessible and "fun:.
