We would like to give a big congratulations to the two BT young scientist groups that successfully qualified for the BT young scientist and technology exhibition
in the RDS, Dublin from the 10th to 14th of January. Chloe O’Carroll, Aine Enright, and Aoife O’Brien have shown great interest and concern over the safety of equestrians on public roads. Having a high interest in horse riding themselves, they have noticed how there is a lack of awareness towards the correct rules of the road when encountering someone horse riding on public roads.
Our second qualified project, by Tomás Culhane and Ciaran Healy, is a technology and agriculture themed project. Tomás and Ciaran have noticed how there can be a struggle in maintaining the correct current in an electric fence as current can be lost due to vegetation being in contact with the fence. They are currently designing a fence in which current lost will be at a minimum.
Many other very interesting projects were submitted to the exhibition but unfortunately not everyone was selected. We would like to thank these students for their hard work and creative thinking when submitting their projects.
