A look back to 1976 when Jim Sherwin met one of the founders of the Young Scientist Exhibition, Father Tom Burke (1923-2008).

Fr Tom speaks about the exhibition and why he, along with Dr Tony Scott, set it up in the first place back in 1965.

Having seen a similar type of exhibition in the USA, Fr Tom thought it was something that would work in Ireland, but from a less commercial slant.

I think it is a great stimulant.

This episode of ‘Eureka’ was broadcast on 14 January 1976.
