Ambassador Presents Awards at the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition

Ambassador O’Malley met with young scientists and presented awards to finalists of the This Is Not A Game: Ocean Challenge at the 51st edition of the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition.  The initiative was a collaboration between the US Embassy, Coder Dojo, and university partners.  It challenged students to create video games that raise awareness about our oceans, and highlight the environmental issues that threaten our sustained benefit from this valuable resource.  Organizers led several launch events throughout Ireland where students received valuable insights from marine scientists and games industry professionals.  The finalists’ games are showcased in at the Coder Dojo booth at the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition.
