BT Ireland is encouraging Donegal students to apply to enter the 60th BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition (BTYSTE).
Applications are now officially open for the event that will take place from January 10th to 13th 2024.
The BTYSTE, which annually shines a light on STEM research and innovation, will showcase project entries from students in the categories of Technology, Social and Behavioural Science, Biological and Ecological Science, Chemical, Physical, and Mathematical Science, as well as in a brand-new category, Health and Wellbeing.
Students who have a project idea in any of these areas are encouraged to apply for one of the leading school STEM exhibitions in Europe.
There are over 200 prizes to be won and a prize fund of €50,000 for BTYSTE 2024.
These prizes are awarded across all five categories and age groups, including the overall BT Young Scientist & Technologist of the Year Award, worth €7,500, which will see the winners go on to represent Ireland at the prestigious European Union Contest for Young Scientists (EUCYS).
Ireland has a strong record of taking home the prize for first place at the EUCYS, with 17 wins over the past 33 years.
BT Ireland is encouraging students aged 12-19 years from Donegal to enter the BTYSTE 2024. Entrants are asked to fill out an online application form and submit a one-page proposal, outlining their idea by October 2nd 2023.
Qualified entries will be announced at the end of October and will be showcased at BTYSTE 2024 in January.
