Hi, I’m Megan and I’m from County Meath. I recently graduated from Maynooth University with my Bachelor of Science with Education. My specialism subjects are Mathematics and Biology.
I felt it was important I gained experience within a STEM environment that was outside of the classroom. I felt this experience would not only benefit my teaching but also my own personal growth.
During my STInt at Intel I worked with Arduino and Grove kit devices. I also worked with coding resources such as Scratch and mBlock. I was introduced to the world of electronics and coding in a practical setting. I also participated in a few short courses on Excel and learned how it can be used in the classroom.
I designed 12 lesson plans over the duration of my internship which I will bring back to the classroom. The lesson plans cover a range of subjects from Junior Cycle Science to Leaving Cycle Mathematics and Biology. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Intel and would highly recommend it.
