Shell E&P Ireland Limited (SEPIL), along with other technology leaders from Irish industry, has been involved with the Science and Technology in Action Programme for the past six years.
Minister Sherlock exhorted teachers and those involved in second level education to use the tools developed by the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) programme to further the engagement and interest of our students whom he described as the scientists and technologists of the future.
“The STA education resource is supported by our leading industries, from all sectors, and is a true example of Public Private Partnership in action.” said Minister Sherlock.
John Conroy, of SEPIL said that Shell was pleased to be associated with the initiative: “Science and Technology in Action gives students throughout the country the opportunity to see how the theories they learn in maths and science classes are directly related to industry activities.
“As a company working in Stem, we actively encourage and support young people to choose professions in this sector,” John added.
