According the today’s Irish Times, record numbers of students have signed up for the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition taking place next January at the RDS.

Half of all secondary schools across Ireland are sending students to take part this year, with a whooping 2,048 project entries received.

Girls are continuing to outpace the boys when it comes to participation, with 62 per cent of entrants female and 38 per cent male. It looks as if some 4,449 students are hoping to take part, according to BT Ireland

BT organises the event with the support of the Department of Education and Skills, Analog Devices, Intel, Perrigo and RTÉ.
