Intel recognises the absolute importance of STEM for young people and also the alarming decline in interest for key science studies and mathematics. Highlighting this issue and providing the opportunity for public debate and interaction is an important way to encourage wider recognition of the importance of STEM as a foundation for the future.
With that in mind Intel is hosting a public event which will bring together a variety of stakeholders in this space to share their insights. The event, which will take place on March 13th, is open to the general public with audience attendance primarily targeted towards parents and teachers.
The event will include a keynote address from Professor John Sweeney, National University of Ireland Maynooth, entitled ‘Coping with Climate Change – new skills for new challenges’. The keynote will be followed by an interactive panel session with Brendan McDonagh, Manager of Planning & Strategic Investments and RD&I Policy, ID, Arlene O’Neill, 2012 Dublin Rose Physics Graduate and postdoctoral fellow at CRANN and Lorna Keane, Engineering Manager, Communications and Storage Infrastructure Group at Intel Ireland.
The event will take place from 19.00 – 21.00 on Wednesday March 13th in the IR5 Auditorium at the Intel Ireland campus in Leixlip. For full event details and to register to attend, visit www.intel.ie/STEM.
