Hi I’m Samantha from Galway. I am currently studying my Bachelor of Science with concurrent Teacher Education at the University of Limerick. My subject specialisms are Biology and Agricultural Science. I am interested in this programme as I hope to be able to bring useful and effective STEM skills into the classroom for my students.
I am applying for a STEM internship to gain industry experience that I will be able to bring into my classroom. I think that a STEM internship would bring me a new and challenging experience. I hope to gain many different skills that will enhance my teaching ability and I would love the opportunity to meet new people and develop my professional network. I think that I owe it to my students to be able to bring real world experiences into the classroom and a STEM internship would give me this opportunity.
