I Wish Campus Weeks were extended in 2020 from two to four Higher Education Institutes in Ireland for TY students to encourage them to pursue a career in the STEM industry.
For five days approximately 200 transition year girls have the opportunity to attend some of the leading Higher Education Institutes and experience first-hand the broad applications for STEM. They will hear from some of the leading STEM teachers and university students immersed in STEM to help them understand what it is like to study STEM at third level. They will also get to experience the broad reach of STEM on campus from Construction to the Lab, to engineering, architecture, cancer research and so much more.
Along with the I Wish showcase events in both Dublin and Cork, the Campus Week model represents a core element of I Wish.
The I Wish campus weeks provide yet another opportunity through interactive and immersive experiences to encourage engage and empower girls to pursue STEM.
