Hi, my name is Jake and I am studying for my Bachelor of Science with Education at Maynooth University. I am specializing in Biology and Maths. I view this programme as an opportunity to develop my skill set, create new connections, and gain valuable experience and insights into Industry to bring back to the classroom to promote students’ interest in STEM.
I am applying for STEM internship as I hope to gain valuable insight into the work and research in STEM industry along with developing new skills to bring into the classroom to develop lessons that will deepen my student’s knowledge and interest in the STEM world.
Gaining first-hand experience in the STEM field will give me great depth and knowledge to feed into my lessons. I know from my own experience as a student the classes which were the most engaging were the classes that had insight into the real world applications and where the teacher had a real passion and interest in the area or had experience in a similar area. I hope to gain this experience to bring back to the classroom and inspire my students.
