Hi, I’m Wayne from Cork. I have recently completed my Bachelor of Science with concurrent Bachelor of Education in Science Education from University College Cork. I have specialised to become a teacher of Science, Biology, & Chemistry.
I believe that this would be a great opportunity for me to work with qualified people in a STEM industry and gain context and insight into the industry that I will be motivating and inspiring students to enter. I believe it will be beneficial for my personal development as an educator, allow me to make contacts that could enhance students’ education. I am confident my skillset can make a significant contribution to the goals of the STInt hosts.
