Hi there, I’m Jason! I’m from Clare Hall in Dublin and have been living here my whole life. I graduated from DCU in 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Irish and Geography. I am currently studying in the Professional Master of Education in Primary Teaching here too. My specialism subject in this course is the Science of Climate Change and enquiry-based approaches to learning about it.
My experience with SSE Renewables has really showcased to me how valuable STEM skills are to a wide range of roles within companies like this one, and it has also revealed to me all of the positive work being done nationwide to combat climate change through the development of renewable energy assets. I hope to use this newly gained knowledge to promote a positive attitude among students in my future classroom towards all of the positive things that are being done to drive Ireland towards a net zero emissions future and to inform them of the different STEM-related careers they can pursue in the renewables industry if they enjoy STEM subjects and are passionate about helping to stop climate change.
