BT Young Scientist Exhibition 2012

Students from across Tipperary are well represented in Dublin’s RDS, for this years 48th BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition.

In recent years the number of entries to this competition has increased dramatically, reaching an all time high last year when 1735 projects were submitted. Following submissions all entries are screened to select just over 520 projects which then go through to compete. The event each year attracts some 40,000 people, thus making it one of the largest events of its kind in Europe, and the world.

In all 21 projects from Co Tipperary are participating in this years event, which displays in total some 520 projects from all the 32 counties of Ireland.

One projects representing Tipperary comes from the Presentation Secondary School here in Thurles, whose participating students have studied ” Food Packaging Versus Taste.”

The event, which began yesterday, will run until 5.30pm on Saturday next, so do drop in and take a peep.

The winner of this years event will be announced at a ceremony, sponsored by BT, on Friday 13th next.
