Hi, I’m Victoria! I’m from Clondalkin in West Dublin. I graduated from UCD in 2018 with a BAFS degree in Actuarial and Financial Studies. I am in my second year of the PME at DCU. My specialism subjects are maths and economics.
I cannot recommend this internship to other STEM teachers enough. My internship at Intel, along with the weekly STInt meetings has expanded my knowledge of STEM careers and STEM education. I now feel better equipped to promote STEM careers to my students. Going back to the classroom, I hope to integrate the different STEM disciplines into my lessons using the skills and knowledge that I’ve developed throughout the STInt programme.
While working at Intel, I had the opportunity to work on an Arduino project with the theme of working from home. I improved my coding skills and looked at ways in which I could bring my experience at Intel back into the classroom. I created a series of lesson plans aimed at teaching Transition Year students how to program an Arduino. Thank you to the STInt programme, MPE and Intel for providing me with a summer of invaluable experiences.
