Winners of the 2020 BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition, Cormac Harris and Alan O’Sullivan, took home first prize at the European Union Contest for Young Scientists which took place last month. The students won the competition for their statistical investigation into the prevalence of gender stereotyping in five to seven year olds, and the development of an initiative to combat gender bias. Teachers at Coláiste Choilm, Ballincollig, were delighted for the boys, who won the 2020 competition with their project that aimed to identify how early gender stereotyping can be identified. Their research identified the need to focus on boys and girls from a young age, to combat development of gender stereotyping.
