Young Scientist exhibition opens today
Over 40,000 visitors are expected at Dublin's RDS over the next three days as the BT Young Scientist of the Year exhibition opens its doors to the public this afternoon.
550 projects will be on display for the 50th anniversary of the competition, in categories ranging from Social and Behavioural Sciences to Technology.
"Our exhibitors always put on really interesting stands and a lot of devices," said Colm O'Neill, CEO of BT Ireland .
"I have two young girls myself, and when you bring them in there, the place they spend most of their time is talking to the young people about their projects."
