CIBSE and DIT at Young Scientist
DIT and CIBSE had a combined stand presence at the recent Young Scientist Competition which proved extremely successful. Apart from hundreds of young people seeking information on DIT and CIBSE, the personnel managing the stand also took time to examine projects presented by the young scientists.
A number of topical student projects caught the eye of Kevin Kelly (DIT and CIBSE). One in particular was an idea presented by JP Byrne and Cian Dowling, Causeway Comprehensive, Kerry.
In their project they linked the operation of low-cost LED lighting around the skirting board of a house so that it operated when the fire alarm activates. Kevin Kelly saw potential for further development of the concept and the intention is to feature the boys, and their extended project, in a future issue of bs news.
