Another Light Pollution Project Win at BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition
14 Jan 2020
For the second year in a row a light pollution-related project has gained a prize at the BTYST awards. Prof. Brian Espey of the School of Physics provided advice and encouragement for the project which involved a study of the effect of light pollution on the degradation of nitrate molecules, demonstrating a link between light and air pollution in the Irish context. This is one of two light pollution-related projects this year, showing the rise in interest in the topic.
Well done to Sophie and Roisin and their science teacher, Mr. Rory Coote!
