Tell us about yourself

Hi there, I’m Alanna! I’m from Wexford and have been living in Maynooth while in college. I graduated from Maynooth University in 2020 with a BSc in Science Education and I have just finished my 5th year doing the PME 2 at Maynooth University. My specialism subjects are Maths and Biology.

Why did you apply for the STInt Programme?

I heard about the STEM Internship last year and it has been on my mind every since! I want to do something meaningful for the summer before I enter the teaching profession. I am passionate about teaching STEM and want to learn as much as I can to become an innovative teacher. I desire a challenge this summer and would love a summer job where I could draw on the skills I have learnt in my mathematics and biology degree.

Where are you doing your ‘STInt’ in industry?

I’m delighted to have accepted a role at AIB for summer 2021. AIB  are an organisation that are committed to trying to make themselves carbon neutral and as a science teacher I understand the importance of this and what it means for our future.  They are based in Sandyford in Dublin. My internship will most likely be done remotely. During my internship I will be part of the Technology Cyber Risk Management Team. Hopefully this industry experience will help me become a better professional and give me new insights into how the world which I can bring back to the classroom.
