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, USA. 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. The essence of the exhibition is the spirit and ingenuity demonstrated by the students who participate.  As a leader in innovation and technology, BT is thrilled to help cultivate and nurture the talent of our future scientists and engineers through the exhibition itself and also the BT Young Scientist Business Bootcamp.

We hope you enjoy the final stage of the competition at the RDS. Be sure to tweet, check-in and Instagram your pics from the event.
