Two Cork teenagers have taken home the top prize in this year's European Union Contest for Young Scientists.

 

Cormac Harris and Alan O'Sullivan won the BT Young Scientist Award in 2020 with their project on gender stereotyping.

 

They went on to represent Ireland at the EUCYS this year, coming out on top against students from 39 other countries.

 

Their project "identified the need to focus on all children, boys and girls, from a young age, in order to combat the development of gender stereotyping".

 

The winner of BT Young Scientist 2021 was also competing in Europe - Gregory Tar took home third prize for his project on deep fake videos.

 

This year's virtual event was hosted from Salamanca, Spain.

 

The winning teams across both years take home €7,000 each, while the third prize is worth €3,500.
