Time is running out to enter 2017’s BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition (BTYSTE) before the deadline on Wednesday, September 28, 2016.

Taking part couldn’t be simpler – students can submit a one-page proposal outlining their idea via www.btyoungscientist.com. For secondary school students the annual exhibition offers an opportunity to dream big and give it a shot.

Taking place from January 11-14 at the RDS, Dublin, the competition has been named an official Gaisce Challenge Partner which means that students can now dedicate their BTYSTE project work towards achieving a bronze medal as part of Gaisce – The President’s Award.

BTYSTE planning, preparation and participation will all count towards the Personal Skill qualification, one of the four challenge areas undertaken as part of the Gaisce programme.

“BTYSTE isn’t just a school science fair. It is a unique event that provides an opportunity for students to dream and to push their imaginations as far as they can,” said Mari Cahalane, head of the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition.

“Each year we see young people take the first step towards becoming entrepreneurs, scientists and technologists, starting out with a simple idea that can blossom into a formal research concept or even a profitable business.

“Our new partnership with Gaisce provides yet another reason for young people to explore an idea or an innovation, and enter a proposal for 2017.”
