On Day 2 of the 58th BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition (BTYSTE) over 90 judges busily continued their virtual assessments with students across the country, as we move closer to the announcement of BT Young Scientist & Technologist(s) 2022.

Students from across the island of Ireland have continued to pitch their projects and research to a panel of judges from all areas of science and technology today.

Yesterday saw audiences tune in from around the world to check out the student’s projects for themselves and to attend one of the many exciting events taking place this year.

Commenting on the calibre of projects seen thus far, Professor John O’Halloran, President of University College Cork and Chair of the Biological & Ecological Individual Panel said: “Each year students around Ireland showcase incredible scientific innovation and creativity through their BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition projects.

“We as judges are grateful for the time and effort that has been put into each project and the impressive presentation skills students have been demonstrating through their virtual judging sessions at the BTYSTE 2022.”

Audiences were treated to an exciting variety of special acts and events on Day 2 of the BTYSTE 2022 including:
