Science and technology are key, say students

Almost half of secondary school students polled in a recent all-Ireland survey believe that science and technology are the areas that offer the most opportunities for entrepreneurs setting up a business.

Three quarters of all those surveyed also believed that information technology is not adequately taught in their school.

The least popular were sales and marketing.

The research study was released by the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition.
