A long-standing science and technology Exhibition for Irish secondary school students has kicked off in Dublin.
 
Let's take a look at some of the young scientists' brightest moments.
 
The BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition is the largest event of its kind in Ireland.
 
Judges will look at 550 projects from 1,100 students from nearly 250 schools during the three day event.
 
This year's entries cover a range of areas, over 60 percent of which are related to climate change and the environment.
 
At the opening ceremony on Wednesday, Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said he was really blown away by the participants' imagination, determination and vision for the future.
 
He encouraged all the young scientists to use their imagination to build a better Ireland and a better world.
 
The annual exhibition is named after two Irish physicists and was first held in 1965 to encourage Irish students' interest in science.
 
The exhibition's top winner will represent Ireland in an upcoming European Union Contest for Young Scientists.
