The BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition is considered ‘much more than a competition; it is an unforgettable experience of a lifetime for the students who take part’, according to the organisers. The Exhibition itself is the final stage in the competition, which is open to all second level students from Ireland, both north and south. As well as the student projects on display, there are a further four exhibition halls filled with science and technology based exhibits and entertainment, making it a thrilling event for those who entered and for general visitors too.
