The BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition is now an official Gaisce Challenge Partner, allowing young people (aged 15-19*) who are planning and preparing a project for entry to the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition to use their participation to count towards the ‘Personal Skill’ challenge area of Gaisce – The President’s Award at Bronze level.
The BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition is a project based STEM initiative aimed at second level students aged between 12-19 years. It is much more than a competition – it is the experience of a lifetime for the students and teachers who take part. Designed to raise schools’ engagement in the critical subjects of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), the Exhibition calls upon students from all over the island of Ireland to showcase innovative science and technology projects to approx. 50,000 visitors each year.
If you are interested in using your planning, preparation and participation in BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition to count towards a Gaisce Award at Bronze level, speak with your Gaisce President’s Award Leader (PAL) in your school or organisation you’re involved with and agree how you can record and share your weekly progress for the Gaisce Award.
