BT Young Scientist 2019

Every year the science department encourages students to enter the BT Young Scientist competition as part of their extracurricular studies in Largy College.


Largy College student James O’Harte was successful in his entry to the BT Young Scientist Competition 2019 which is held annually in the RDS Dublin. James' project was titled 'Examining the Economic Effect of the Uncertainty Surrounding Brexit'.

James spent 4 days in the RDS in Dublin where he presented his project to thousands of fellow students, teachers and judges. James had a lot of interest from Leo Varadkar and Micheal Martin in his project. He also got to meet and hear from Professor Brian Cox.

Of the experience James has said; 'The BY Young Scientist Exhibition for me was an incredibly valuable experience, that taught me how to properly conduct scientific investigations, allowed me to meet and befriend my peers around the country, and served to help me grow tremendously as a person. I am extremely proud to have represented Largy College in this national competition, and hope to do it again in future. I would recommend anyone considering entering next year to do so.'
