DESMOND College student Aoife Culhane spoke to the Limerick Leader at the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition at the RDS this Wednesday about her research into the acceptance of foreign national students in Ireland. 

Aoife presented her project A comparative investigation into the acceptance of foreign national students in rural and urban schools' in the Social and Behavioural section of the competition. 

She discovered that some foreign national students had experienced bullying and negative attention in schools in Munster.

The Limerick Leader has a team covering the 54th BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition which is taking place at Dublin's RDS and features a host of Limerick schools participating.

Students from 18 secondary schools across the city and county are presenting at the four day event.

The Leader's team will soak up the abundance of innovation, unique ideas and creative thinking from over 1,000 young minds who will exhibit 550 projects in the hope of lifting a coveted trophy.

Around 50,000 people will pass through the doors of the RDS during the exhibition to get a flavour of the exciting, intriguing and mind-bending projects.
