The BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition 2022 is set to inspire and support young people to change the world through STEM. In addition, it creates awareness amongst the public of the critical importance of STEM in the growth and development of Ireland and abroad.
The alumni of the exhibition have gone on to make their mark in so many sectors around the world. Indeed the 2021 winner, 18-year-old Greg Tarr, has established Inferex and raised over $1 million seed capital. The 2020 and 2021 winners have recently achieved 1st and 3rd places in the EU Contest of Young Scientists.
The 2022 exhibition is being held on the 12th–14th January using a technology platform, with an excellent array of content lined-up for the exhibition. Both project entry fees and ticket fees have been waived.
As well as the 550 brilliant student projects on display, there is a diverse schedule of STEM and business events and talks, including: the Opening Ceremony with President Michael D. Higgins; BT Nextipedia, with Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar, BT Group’s Rob Shuter, Elizabeth Day, Dominic Price, and Paul Taylor; and TechStarter, with Connecting Women In Technology (CWIT).
The exhibition is the success it is today due to the ‘coalition’ of fantastic organisations and individuals who support the vision of the exhibition and make up a formidable STEM movement.
BT invite NI Chamber members to visit the exhibition portal and be uplifted by the students and their hopes for a better world.
