I am calling on students from across Galway to submit their entries for the 2020 BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition (BTYSTE).
The competition is open to second level students who are aged between 12 and 19 on October 31 2019.
Submitting a project entry will earn students a free ticket to
the exhibition, while the top 550 projects from across Ireland will go through to compete in January.
Ireland is home to some of the brightest young minds across Europe and is a fantastic hub for innovation.
It is events such as the BTYSTE that celebrate creativity, innovation and imagination and give students from across Ireland the exciting opportunity to share their talents in areas of science and technology to thousands of members of the public.
The exhibition helps foster a greater appreciation for scientific and technological innovation.
The contest allows young people to not only showcase their projects on a national stage but also get the opportunity to learn more about their topic and make some new friends along
the way.
The BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition will take place from January 8-11 2020 at the RDS in Dublin. The Exhibition offers students the chance to take home one of
the most coveted awards for participants, the BTYSTE perpetual trophy and a large prize
fund. There are also 200 prizes to be won for individuals, groups, and teachers.
The overall winner will get the opportunity to represent Ireland at the European Union Contest for Young Scientists in 2020.
The deadline for entries is midnight Tuesday September 24 so there is no time for delay!
