Foreword A year ago the Aer Lingus Young Scientists Exhibition celebrated its 21st anniversary. On that occasion we welcomed back former young scientists who have distinguished themselves in their chosen fields. Their success confirms that the exhibition fulfills its central objective - the development of the scientific and technical skills of young Irish people. This year we welcome another 900 young exhibitors who come to the exhibition with fresh ideas and much enthusiasm. I am sure they will benefit from their participation in the exhibition and especially from their experience in undertaking research for their projects. I wish on behalf of Aer Lingus to thank our many sponsors and all those who assist us with the young scientists exhibition. It is a major event with, I am glad to say, a high international reputation. This year the top award winners from the exhibition will participate in the Philips European Science Contest in Oslo; the International Science & Engineering Fair in the United States; an International seminar for young scientists and scholars in Bristol; the European Space Agency Giotto Mission; the EEC Research Centre in the Netherlands and the Nobel Prize Ceremonies in Stockholm. Our thanks to the National Board for Science & Technology; the Department of Education; Philips Electrical (Ireland) Limited; the Royal Dublin Society; the Westinghouse Electric Corporation; the Commission of European Communities; the Youth Employment Agency; and Cara The Computer People. We also extend thanks to the' scientific and professional Institutes and to the many prize-giving organisations listed in this catalogue. A warm welcome to Telecom Eireann and the other feature displays provided for the exhibition. Finally, I wish to pay special tribute to the eminent judges who work with us in developing the exhibition and who spend three days assessing the projects. Thanks to them and to the teachers on whom we rely so heavily in organising the exhibition.

David M. Kennedy Chief Executive
