President officially opens the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition 2021

As he has done for many years, President Higgins formally opened the 2021 BT Young Scientists exhibition. The event, the first ever virtual version of the annual exhibition of student projects, featured 550 student projects selected from more than 1,300 entries.

President Higgins is a great supporter of the BT Young Scientist & Technologist exhibition, praising it for encouraging young people to push the boundaries outwards and applying their creative energy and curiosity to a constant exploration of  how the world around them can be improved.

The President has often paid tribute to the competition, for its ability to provide a platform for young people to showcase their talents, saying it is “at the pinnacle of scientific achievement and discovery amongst young people worldwide”.
