Hi, I’m Chloe! I am a PME graduate from the University of Galway. I Studied a BSc in Bioanalytical Science at the Letterkenny Institute of Technology (Now ATU Letterkenny). I hope to gain some meaningful insights into the world of STEM which I can carry with me into the science classroom.
Prior to applying to the PME programme, I had some experience in working in STEM. I spent 6 months working in a cleanroom manufacturing biochips for disease diagnosis and drug and alcohol testing. I am eager to get a different perspective of the industry so I can further my knowledge and understanding and bring more information to my students. It is my hope that I can inspire them to further a scientific career.
