Hello, I’m Kate Malcolmson! I’m from Wexford. I have recently completed my undergraduate degree in University College Dublin studying Biology, Mathematics and Education. I am now doing the Msc Mathematics and Science Education course in UCD.
My time at Intel working alongside the Movidius VPU Group will have a lasting effect on my teaching career. I gained valuable insight into the STEM industry and developed many new skills. Having had the chance to explore various coding projects over the summer I now hope to gain further qualifications that will enable me to teach computer science. I can’t wait to bring all that I have learned from this internship into my future classrooms. I hope to inspire my students to explore STEM and get to know the STEM industry just as this internship has inspired me.
