My name is Eric Fenton and I am in the University of Limerick studying the Bachelor of Science with concurrent Teacher Education. My subject specialisms are Biology and Physics. I have a keen regard to industry which was furthered by my time working in such when in construction, I spent time in the food processing and pharmaceutical manufacturing before returning to education to pursue my current degree.
My interests in science are heavily rooted in biology and physics, the idea of helping others through medical devices and biopharmaceuticals especially.
I would hope to acquire useful experience that I could use to aid my students in the classroom. I feel having an actual experience of such would allow me to be more informed and be the guide that I should be to future students/aspiring scientists.
I feel this gives an insight to an industry setting that I would not be able to access without a programme like this. I also enjoy meeting and working with people from all backgrounds, due to this programme I would expect it gives a clear path to involving industry in class elements.
