Hi I’m Erica, I am just finished my final year of the Professional Master of Education in Galway. My subject specialisms are Science and Biology.
I have always had a passion for Science but in my undergraduate degree I didn’t get much of an opportunity to experience placement in the STEM industry. The STEM internship would be a brilliant opportunity for me to experience work in the industry and bring it back to my classroom, through enjoyable and informative lessons for my students.
