BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition

BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition

The BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition, now approaching the 49th event, is one of the finest showcases in the world for science, technology and mathematics. This all island exhibition, which is organised and sponsored by BT, provides a platform for our young scientists and technologists to come together to investigate theories, discover new technologies and advance current knowledge through innovation.

Continued focus is needed on developing as a knowledge economy. We believe that our investment in, and commitment to, this exhibition encourages schools throughout the island to have a passion and interest in those very skills that will help Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland advance and thrive.

The success of the event endorses our investment and commitment. A record number of projects were entered this year from across the island and previous winners have gone on to enjoy success at a European level at the European Union Contest for Young Scientists.

There are a number of people and organisations that BT works with every year to make this event the success that it is — the Departments of Education North and South, the judges, our co-sponsors and exhibitors and of course the students themselves.

The BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition is held in Dublin every January. For more information on the exhibition, visit www.btyoungscientist.com

The success is that thousands of students go through a process and many of them start to understand the value of scientific research and get enjoyment out of it. And in addition, more than 40,000 members of the public come to the RDS to enjoy this  festival of science.’
