The Department of Education and Skills can confirm that it has engaged with the organisers of the BT Young Scientist and Technologist Exhibition around the 2021 event. The organisers of the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition have confirmed to the Department that they are currently monitoring timelines around schools re-opening across the country and the Government’s roadmap for re-opening the country. These decisions will determine any changes that may need to be made in relation to the delivery of the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition 2021.

We will continue to engage with them as new information and guidelines emerge. The organisers remain committed to the running of the competition. All decisions will be guided by the most up to date advice from the National Public Health Emergency Team.
