MORE THAN 1,000 students have faced the first round of judging in the 49th BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition in Dublin today.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny and TV presenter Ryan Tubridy were among the attendees at the RDS for a glimpse at some of the 550 projects vying for the prestigious title.

“We live in a world that is changing at bewildering speed and it is mind-blowing that the young people here continue to show so much enthusiasm and diverse spectrum of interests that they have here,” said Kenny.

“This is part of the future…After all, the future is the only place we all have to live.”
