2023 BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition Takes Place 11th – 14th January with 10 Limerick Schools Participating
As excitement builds for the biggest exhibition of its kind in Europe, Analog Devices, a gold sponsor of the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition since 2000, hosted a special preview of its interactive technology stand before shipping it to the RDS.
Students and their families were given a sneak preview of the stand and the opportunity to explore and engage with Analog Devices’ technology and solutions that are impacting the efficiency, comfort and sustainability of our lives.
A 25 member team of recently graduated engineers were involved in the design and build of the 125sq m interactive, technology-packed stand that will feature in the exhibition’s Technology Hall from 11th January.
Visitors to the Analog Devices (ADI) stand at the RDS will experience first-hand how ADI’s technology is enabling sustainability and improving people’s lives and the planet with exciting new additions like the Kinetic Corner and Green Energy Technology table. This is a key focus of the stand as Analog Devices strives to demonstrate its strategic commitment to using its technology, people, and voice to protect the planet, improve quality of lives and drive positive change for future generations.
Old favourites like Laser Vault and the Floor Piano, featuring ADI’s sensing technology that bridges the physical and digital world to enable breakthroughs at the Intelligent Edge, will still be on show and eagerly waiting to be danced on and dodged through by the next generation of Young Scientists in the making.
Analog Devices has been a Gold Sponsor of the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition for 22 years. Each year as a Gold Sponsor of the technology category, ADI designs and installs a new stand at the exhibition, contributes to the judging and presents a number of excellence awards to students and teachers.
Commenting on the company’s long-standing involvement with the exhibition, Brian O’Mara, Analog Devices, said “Our involvement in the 2023 BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition forms a key component of our ongoing strategy of promoting an interest in STEM and an awareness of STEM careers at secondary level both nationally and in our region. We are delighted to be returning to the RDS after two years of virtual events and look forward to welcoming everyone to our highly-interactive stand.”
The 2023 BT Young Scientist Exhibition which has shone a light on STEM research and innovation for almost 60 years returns as an in-person event for the first time in three years.
