Three Gaelcholaiste Ui Chonba students, Siun Ni Cheallaigh, Roisin Nolan & Alanna Slater have been selected for this years BT Business Boom Camp.
In total 30 intermediate and senior students from the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition 2016 have been selected to experience first-hand the world of technology, commercialisation and entrepreneurship.
A 4-day programme has been created where the participants will work in groups with one common goal. That goal is to inspire creativity and innovative thinking, to encourage research and to always ask questions as they continue throughout life from school to college to work and beyond.
The teams will be created from all participants of the programme and students will work alongside others they may not know on a new project.
Students will also be set business challenges and will be addressed by guest speakers throughout the 4 days. The week will culminate in a presentation with their group members to a panel of expert judges.
