Secondary level students from across Ireland took part in the event by submitting entries across four categories – technology, social and behavioural science, biological and ecological science or chemical, physical and mathematical science. David launched the event by levitating in Cornmarket on seemingly invisible chair!

Mari Cahalane Head of BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition said of booking David “David was one of the Special Acts at the 2016 BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition which welcomed over 48,000 members of the public to the event over three days. He captivated the audience from the very youngest to the oldest with his energetic and dynamic delivery at every show.  He had the audiences throughout in the palm of his hands and they left the arena enthralled and confused in equal measure.  David is an excellent presenter and raconteur and a real pleasure to work with such a professional. Looking forward to working with him again!”

David loved being a part of BTYSE and can’t wait until the event returns again next year.
