Masters in Mechanical Engineering
Teaching Assistant @ International Space University
Favourite thing to do in engineering: Build stuff, fail, build it better
About Me: I am an Irish Mechanical Engineer with a huge interest in space and exploring its benefits for life on Earth.
A Mechanical Engineer, I graduated from UCD in 2014 and have worked in Engineering, Space Education and Communications since then. I worked to bring the 2017 Space Studies Program to Ireland last year, (the worlds biggest space learning program) where we had astronauts, scientists, and artists teaching students about all things space.
I am an avid scuba diver and surfer and in my spare time you can find me building things and generally making a mess in my workshop.
My Work: I work with the International Space University's Space Studies Program organizing the worlds best space learning program.
What I'd do with the money: Creating inspiring workshops to bring space and engineering into the class room.
I love creating workshops to help communicate the wonders of science, engineering and space to students. This price would let me reach more students, create more interactive workshops and increase their excitement factor!
