Hi, I’m Orlaith! I’m from Castlebar, Co. Mayo. I am currently studying Science Education in DCU and will be starting my final year in September. My specialism subjects are Maths and Physics.
I applied to the STInt Programme to gain some real-world experience and see how STEM subjects are used in practical situations. I hope to gain some insight into STEM industries which will help me to advise my future students. I’m really looking forward to putting some of the material I’ve learned in college into practice.
I’m delighted to have accepted a role at EirGrid for Summer 2021. EirGrid is a technology company that provides electricity all over Ireland. My internship will be done remotely and I’m looking forward to getting stuck in!
