And so the Young Scientist Exhibition was born. There are over 140 awards . Since 1965, over three quarters of a million people have visited the Are you interested in competing in the Primary Science Fair which has been held alongside the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition

A project that led to the discovery of a potential new antibiotic capable of beating antimicrobial resistant bacteria including MRSA has won the overall prize at this year’s BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition .

Adam Kelly, from Skerries Community College, took home the top prize with his project entitled “Optimizing The Simulation Of General Quantum Circuits“.

The 17 year old used algorithms “to analyse, optimise and simulate quantum circuits in the most efficient ways”.

His impressive work has already attracted the interest of key industry leaders.

The BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition , commonly called the Young Scientist Exhibition , is an Irish annual school students' science competition that has been held in the Royal Dublin Society, Dublin , Ireland, every January since the competition was founded by Fr.

Shane Curran, 16, from Dublin has won the overall prize at this year's BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition for a project on software which secures secrets. His prize includes €5,000, the perpetual trophy and a trip to the European Space Research and Technology Centre in the

BT Young Scientist Judge and Chair of the Chemical, Physical and Mathematics Category, Professor Sean Corish, said: “Quantum computing is an emerging technology which represents a potentially significant advance in computing.

“Adam developed a tool to select the optimum algorithm for the simulation of particular quantum circuits, which may inform the development of a practical quantum computer, which is still at an early stage. This has implications across many areas, including cybersecurity.

“Adam’s contributions are underpinned by a fluency in what is a highly technical and complex field which hugely impressed the judges.”

Local councillor Tom O’Leary said he was glad to see Skerries well represented at the prestigious exhibition.

He said: “Skerries Well Represented today at the BT Young Scientists Exhibition with Sam Enright and Adam Kelly and 18 projects from Balbriggan, Rush and Portmarnock.

“Great buzz today there from all those hot young positive yes we can brains.

“Ireland has a very bright future.”
