Bank of Ireland’s first appearance at the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition in Dublin’s RDS is grabbing the attention of students. The Bank is primary sponsor of RTE’s new Junior Dragon’s Den format and is showcasing the interactive ‘6th Dragon’ game at its stand where students visiting the exhibition can test their business acumen.
Between 12:00 – 14:00 today real dragon Gavin Duffy will be at the stand taking on the students head-to-head in the mini Den. It is expected to generate great excitement at the event as students seek to out-smart the wise Dragon. This will be great practice for Gavin as he prepares for RTE’s 2013 series of Junior Dragons’ Den.
The Bank has also announced that as primary sponsor of Leinster Rugby it has arranged for several Leinster players to join them at their stand on Saturday ahead of their must-win Heineken cup clash. The Heineken Cup itself will also be on display and students will get the opportunity to grab some sought-after photographs with players and the Cup.
There are also many fantastic prizes for the students to win, including tickets for the big Leinster game on Saturday, various Leinster kit pieces and a number of really cool iPads.
