The STEM Teacher Internship Programme (STInt) programme goes from strength to strength in summer 2022 with the largest number of teachers and host organisations participating to date.
Founded in 2016 by Dublin City University together with Accenture and the 30% Club, the STInt programme enables future STEM teachers to engage with unique STEM experiences across a range of industrial sectors. To date, the programme has provided 176 STEM teachers with 12 week summer internship placements in more than 40 of Ireland’s leading companies.
This summer, 62 teachers from 6 Irish universities completed internship placements in 31 leading companies including:
The STInt teachers are from programmes in Dublin City University, University College Dublin, Maynooth University, University College Cork, National University of Ireland Galway and University of Limerick. The programme is supported by Science Foundation Ireland, the 30% Club Ireland and Connecting Women In Technology (CWiT).
This flagship programme is supported by an education-industry collaboration that is strongly committed to supporting innovative and creative approaches to STEM education in Ireland. This enables primary and post-primary teachers to inspire future generations of their own students to develop the STEM competencies needed to thrive and shape our rapidly changing world in a globally-connected society.
