Getting ready for the Young Scientist Exhibition
5 January 2018
Over 2,000 entries from schools across Ireland were received for this year’s BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition (BTYSTE).
Judges chose 550 projects for the exhibition, which starts on Wednesday 10 January. Girls make up more than 60 per cent of the 1,126 team members and individuals taking part.
Last year around 65,000 people visited the show, which was supported by 200 of our volunteers.
BTYSTE has produced a number of notable winners. Patrick Collison – a winner from 2005 – went on to co-found Stripe, an online payment company that has been valued at $9bn. And our 2013 winners – Ciara Judge, Sophie Healy-Thow and Emer Hickey – won the EU Contest for Young Scientists as well as the global Google Science Fair.
