TAOISEACH VISITS BDI EDUCATION & OUTREACH LAB
The Taoiseach, Mr Enda Kenny TD visited the BDI Education & Outreach Laboratory on Wednesday July 24th 2012.
The visit was in association with the Centre for Talented Youth Ireland (CTYI) at Dublin City University.
During his visit, the Taoiseach met with students from ages 8 to 12 who were performing chemistry experiments in the laboratory, including acid-base reactions and looking at hydrophobic materials.
The Taoiseach emphasised the importance of nurturing the talent and maximising the potential of Ireland's young people.
"As Ireland moves to a high-skills, high-tech economic model, these exceptional young people are our future entrepreneurs, our scientists, our doctors, our inventors, our engineers, our gamers, our musicians, our environmentalists, our artists, our philosophers, our politicians, our leaders of the future."
