This programme has been developed to create a pool of STEM Ambassadors who will represent the Faculty at various events which promote STEM to all sectors of society. Events such as those associated with SciFest, Discovery, VexRobotics, Coder Dojo, Engineers Ireland etc. will be attended by CIT STEM Ambassadors who will work at information stands, organise demonstrations and interact with the next generation of STEM students.

“We are delighted that CIT STEM research students will be available to engage with all who are interested in learning more about engineering, science and technology”, says Michael Loftus, Head of Faculty of Engineering & Science in CIT. “Our Ambassadors are ideally placed to provide insights into cutting edge STEM research developments in a way which is accessible to all. Their work will stimulate interest in STEM and help attract future generations of talented students to study, research and work in STEM-related fields.”
