Hi! My name is Peter and I’m going into my final year in Science Education Dublin City University. I’m very interested in Physics and specifically Astronomy. I would love an opportunity to get to work in industry and bring back some much-needed real world STEM experience into the classroom.
I’m hoping to expand my knowledge of STEM so that I can bring that knowledge to my students and maybe prepare and guide them when making important choices about their future. This is an amazing opportunity for prospective teachers.
I’m applying to the STEM teacher internship program because I believe it would be a fantastic chance to enhance my STEM knowledge and abilities through a unique exposure to real-world science in industry.
To advance my teaching profession and ensure I am as qualified as possible for my students, I would love the opportunity to work in an industry setting where I get to see real careers in STEM and gain experience within this exciting industry.
I believe that I can bring this knowledge into the classroom to give future learners hands-on and practical knowledge of STEM careers and bring industry connections to the school to enhance the whole school community and their involvement with STEM.
The Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS) conducts advanced research exploring big questions of the 21st century and beyond. Its research gains insights into Celtic society and its legacy; progresses our understanding of our island, our planet and the universe; and deciphers the underpinning mathematical principles of nature. DIAS Dunsink Observatory is part of the DIAS School of Cosmic Physics Astronomy and Astrophysics Section. Dunsink is a designated European site of historical significance for physics and has been a centre for astronomical research and public engagement in Ireland since its foundation in 1785.
