In its 49th year the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition is much more than a competition; it is an unforgettable experience of a lifetime for the students who take part.
The exhibition itself is the final stage in the competition which is open to all
second level students from Ireland, both North and South. As well as the 550 student
projects on display, there are a further four exhibition halls filled with science
and technology based exhibits and entertainment, making it a thrilling event for
those who enter and for general visitors too.
There are over 100 prizes to be won, including the prestigious
BT Young Scientist(s) of the Year Award and the chance to represent Ireland at the European Union Contest for Young Scientists.
Many previous winners of the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition have gone on to amazing careers in the science and technology industries. Indeed, many of them used their award as a springboard to launch their professional lives.
