STInt 2022: What We Learned

STInt 2022: What We Learned

As another successful summer of the STEM Teacher Internship (STInt) programme comes to a close, we are excited to share the learning from our teachers. This year’s programme placed 62 student and early career primary and post-primary STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) teachers in 31 leading organisations across Ireland.

This programme is an iconic partnership between Irish education and industry – a globally unique programme – and addresses Ireland’s vision for global leadership in STEM education, citizenship and enterprise. The objectives of STInt are to influence STEM teaching and learning in Irish schools; provide role models to inspire future generations of students (particularly girls and those who may be socially, economically or educationally disadvantaged) to enhance their knowledge of STEM careers; and to foster sustainable school-industry collaborations.

Over the summer, our teachers shared some of the new skills and knowledge they’ve gained from this experience. Check out these Jamboards they created:

At the end of their summer placement, each teacher created a short video sharing what they gained from their STInt in industry. Watch their testimonials here:

I worked with Arduino and Grove kit devices and software to create lesson plans that teach electronics and coding alongside a wide range of subjects from Junior Cycle Science to Leaving Cycle Maths and Biology. I worked with mentors to develop a resource on mBlock that can be replicated by students themselves and used to aid their understanding of trigonometry.

I worked with the Digital, Roaming and Website Accessibility Team where I created Irish Sign Language (ISL) videos to help support Vodafone customers who are deaf or hard of hearing and advised on some key changes to the Accessibility page of their website.
