In 1963 two physics researchers from the University College Dublin, Rev. Dr. Tom Burke and Dr. Tony Scott, came across the concept of ‘Science Fairs’ while conducting research in New Mexico. The pair decided that this type of hands-on science was something that students in Ireland could benefit from. And so the Young Scientist Exhibition was born. BT has been the proud sponsor and organiser of the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition for 19 years.
2019 will see the exhibition celebrate its 55th year, making it one of the longest standing exhibitions of its kind in the world. Did you know? 4,251 students from 383 schools across the island of Ireland, covering 2,031 projects, competed for the coveted title ‘BT Young Scientist & Technologist of the Year 2018′
