Hello, I’m Kate Malcolmson! I’m from Wexford. I am currently in my fourth year at University College Dublin studying Biology, Mathematics and Education. I will be doing the Msc Mathematics and Science Education course in UCD next year.
When I first heard of the STEM Teacher Internship programme I was incredibly excited at the opportunity it offered me. I have always had a passion for teaching and that is why I am pursuing the career that I am. However, I also have a great love for maths and science. I have often considered what career I might pursue in these areas if I were not to become a teacher. This internship provides an incredible opportunity to see what a job in the STEM industry would be like. I believe it will also provide me with experiences that will aid in my teaching career as I will be able to bring a new perspective into the classroom as a teacher who hasn’t just studied STEM but experienced working in the industry also.
I’m delighted to have accepted a role at Intel as a Movidius Operations Intern for summer 2021. Intel is a global leader in innovation and new technology, based in Leixlip, Co. Kildare. My internship will most likely be done remotely but may move to a hybrid style of working later in the summer.
I have been told that during my internship I will learn a broad range of business skills like team building, virtual collaboration, program management, organization communications & content creation and community engagement. I am looking forward to experiencing all aspects of an operations function essential to drive a leading-edge design team creating AI & vision technology.
