Hi there, My Name is Colm I’m from Sligo, but I have been living in Drumcondra for the past four academic years. I have just finished my final year in Primary Teaching at DCU and I am due to graduate this Autumn. The area I chose to specialise in during my degree was Digital Learning. 

Tell us about your ‘STInt’ in industry

I cannot recommend this STEM Teacher internship Programme enough, I was lucky enough to work with Microsoft during the 12 weeks, This internship has provided me with a fantastic insight into how Major STEM industries work, I have seen and learned first-hand how important Communication and team work is within a STEM role. Although my 12 weeks with Microsoft were done completely remotely I really enjoyed my time, and learned a lot about the key attributes to a STEM role.
