Comment The ‘one page proposal’ outlining your project idea, together with completed entry forms and fees, must be submitted by Tuesday 24th of September 2019.

The Young Scientists’ Exhibition was the brainchild of two UCD Physics researchers, a Carmelite Priest, the Rev Dr Burke and Dr Tony Scott. In the US in 1963 they discovered “science fairs” and tailored the idea for Ireland.

You can enter your project as an individual or share the work as a group entry. A group is defined as comprising of no more than three people from the same school and the same age grouping. To give everybody an equal chance of winning, there are three age groups in which to enter:

Junior: 1st & 2nd Year (Rep of Ireland) Year 8, 9 &10 (Northern Ireland)

Intermediate: 3rd & 4th Year (Rep of Ireland) Year 11 and 12 (Northern Ireland)

Senior: 5th and 6th Year (Rep of Ireland) Year 13 & 14 (Northern Ireland)

A decision on whether or not a project qualifies for the Exhibition in the RDS in January, will be made on the basis of your initial application, so the one page proposal is very important.

The judges will screen all projects entered during October. All students will be communicated with as soon as possible afterwards to let them know if they have qualified or not for the Exhibition in the RDS As this process can take four or five weeks to complete, it is essential that students continue work on their projects while awaiting adjudication.
