Young Scientists in action again

January is often a dull month after the excitement of the Holiday period, but in Ireland the highlight of the month for me is always the Young Scientists exhibition. This years event is kicking off today and I can see that there is a great batch of excellent projects on display This gives me great confidence in the future of the Irish economy to see young people with a great enthusiasm for getting involve in science and technology projects.

I will be helping run the IBM stand on Saturday afternoon and I am looking forward to viewing the projects myself in the morning. The IBM stand will feature a number of exhibits -  I will be involved in showing off the power of the scratch programming environment which is a popular programming environment for young children who are learning to code for the first time. I also believe that there will be a stand representing the CoderDojo movement so we will have a chance to see what young Irish coders are capable of acieving.

Best of luck to all participants!
