My name is Emma Duffy, and I’m from County Meath but presently live in Dublin. I’m now in my third year of the Bachelor in Science Education at Dublin City University, specialising in Mathematics and Physics. I have a passion for both STEM and Education, and eager to share my love for science education with others. I also enjoy playing the piano, volunteering in my community, and hiking Ireland’s many mountain ranges.

Through this internship I hope to enhance and broaden my skills while also gaining invaluable experience working in the STEM industry. Above all, I would love to share my experience from participating in this program with my future students in order to motivate and encourage them to pursue a STEM career in the future. I am fully committed to continuing my personal and professional growth and I’m eager to make a difference in the lives of students.
