In addition to Desmond College having 16 projects accepted, Michael Upton, a leaving certificate student and twice winner at previous Young Scientist Competitions in 2010 and 2012, has been selected to become a Guest Information Ambassador.
Michael will carry out research on behalf of BT Young Scientist and will make a video to be shown as part of the 2013 BT Young Scientist Exhibition to be held in the RDS in January 9th-12th 2013.
In total eight past winners were chosen from amongst the thousands of entrants. This is a unique achievement and honour for the school and for Michael who along with Kieran Scanlon was featured on the Late Late Show last year.
It is testament to Michael’s dedication and commitment to scientific endeavors over several years. It is also affirmation of the high esteem that Desmond College students are held in by the organisers of the Young Scientist Competition.
