In this, the 50th anniversary of what is now a cornerstone of the Irish educational calendar, secondary school students from Leitrim are being called upon to enter the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition by Wednesday October 2.
Building on the positive momentum in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) seen during this year’s Leaving Certificate where the numbers of students sitting Chemistry, Physics, Maths, Applied Maths, Technology and Biology have increased, BT Ireland is calling on students to submit ideas and inventions they have for creating a better future.
To celebrate the 50th exhibition, BT has partnered with the Institutes of Technology Ireland (IOTI) and NI regional colleges to find the most creative design for a new award trophy. Third level students will submit designs, and the overall winner will be selected by one of Ireland’s most celebrated artists, Graham Knuttel. The exhibition in the RDS, Dublin from Jan 8- 11 2014
