BT Ireland have launched the 2013 BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition
From analytics to innovation - students at the BT Young Scientist & Technology exhibition adapt to a changing Ireland. BT Ireland have launched the 2013 BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition and is calling on students throughout Ireland to enter their ideas and inventions by the 1st October 2012.
As part of the launch, BT has released research into trends in projects which have qualified over the past six years to understand patterns in student’s thinking, how they make decisions and from where they draw their inspiration and subject matter.
The extensive research undertaken by BT into over 3,000 qualified entries from 2007 to 2012 has revealed that participating students have dramatically evolved their ideas to reflect the constantly shifting economic, environmental and social landscapes in Ireland over this period.
This year's exhibition saw 550 projects make it to the finals, with 221 schools hailing from 30 counties taking part. The ultimate winners of the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition in January were Mark Kelly and Eric Doyle. The two students from Synge Street CBS in Dublin won for their project which looked at planetary motion and how satellites can stay on the right flight path when in space.
