BEST SciTeCh is a Science and Technology competition, organised by BEST Porto on an annual basis at FCUP (Science Faculty of the University of Porto) during the first academic semester.

Participants have the opportunity to test the boundaries of their imagination, teamwork, presentation skills and knowledge. Ever since the first SciTeCh edition participants have had the option to enroll in the Team Design category, which consists in the construction of a prototype using tools and materials provided by BEST Porto. More recently, participants have also had the opportunity to participate in the Case Study category, in which they must solve a theoretical problem about real issues and present their solution to a group of judges.

The event allows participants from both FEUP (Engineering Faculty of the University of Porto) and FCUP.
