BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition
Our names are Amy Richards, Rebecca Thomas and Sadhbh Cullinane, all from Transition Year.
We are delighted to have been selected to represent our school in the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition in January 2017.
Our project is called “An Investigation into the Public’s Attitudes and Perceptions Towards Antibiotic Use and Antimicrobial Resistance”. Our project aims to compare the difference in attitudes of Irish people with the attitudes of those in other European countries. We have a Facebook page called “BT Young Scientists: Bye Bye Biotics” with links to our survey.
