Information for Teachers

Teachers will see real, long-term benefits by getting involved. It’s a great way to get pupils inspired about the vital subjects of science and technology and a brilliant way to showcase your school’s scientific strengths. It also helps to put the fun back into subjects that are viewed by many as being a bit ‘dry’.

Judging

Judging will commence on Wednesday 6 th January 2021 from 3.00pm and will continue all day Thursday. Final judging will be completed on Friday morning.

Withdrawal of a 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 If a project has to be withdrawn please let us know immediately.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 before 11 th December 2020. 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. We hope to launch an online platform where schools and families can enjoy the exhibition from home. More details will be released later in the year
