Withdrawl of qualified project

When a student confirms that they will exhibit a project, one of the available stand spaces will be allocated against that project. It is the teacher’s responsibility to check with students before the Christmas holidays to confirm that they are still planning to participate.

If a project has to be withdrawn please let us know immediately. Call 1800 924 362 from the Republic of Ireland or 0800 917 1297 from Northern Ireland or email: youngscientist@bt.com before 11th December 2021. Failure to do so may lead to the disqualification of participation in the project in future years.

School visits

With no physical exhibition this year, there will be no school visits. Our online platform https://portal.btyoungscientist.com/ is where schools and families can enjoy the exhibition from home.
