What is Sci-TechKnoFest?

First held in 1997, NIHERST’s Sci-TechKnoFest (STKF) has grown into the English-speaking Caribbean’s biggest and most spectacular science festival. The festival utilises entertaining and thought-provoking methods to educate the public on selected aspects of science and technology based on a chosen theme. STKF showcases local creativity and scientific ingenuity as an avenue to promote confidence and pride in our own creative abilities and empower more of our people to engage in invention and innovation.

The general goal of the programme is to promote greater public awareness and understanding of science, technology and innovation (STI), its impact on our everyday life and well-being, and its vital role in promoting economic prosperity, social progress and environmental sustainability.

Science festivals such as STKF provide an opportunity to celebrate the wonders of STI. Science festivals bring citizens together to celebrate STI and its importance in socio-economic development and our everyday life. The rapid advancement of technology is putting pressure on all countries to transform and become more innovative and creative. Moreover, the demand for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) skills is accelerating at a fast rate. Now more than ever it is important to promote STI and STEM careers among citizens. STKF festivals have proven over the years that they have contributed to increasing the public knowledge, engagement, and appreciation of STI and promoting sustainable behaviours and practices.
