I’m one of the past winners and have returned again to visit the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition 2011 – you just cant keep me away!!!
I have just started my first year in university, studying Bioprocess engineering in UCD which is great!! The BT Young Scientist helped me so much in deciding what I wanted to study this year. Coming to the exhibition every year and seeing all the great projects inspired me to look into a career in science.
I went to the student club last night and helped out with the irish quiz for the first time in years and it was great to get a chance to meet everyone. The red-coats certainly organised an incredible night!! Even students from Northern Ireland who had never spoken Irish before were picking up a few words from their new friends. I think everyone had a great time – I know I did!!!
Good luck to everyone for the awards tonight – but remeber just being here is an incredible achievement and the standard of projects this year is higher than ever. I hope you are all haveing the time of your life because I know I certainly am and I might even see some of you here again next year!!
Best of Luck,
