Trinity College Dublin and API are offering high school students a unique, 10-day university-based STEM enrichment program, through the Walton International program. Students will work alongside like-minded Irish students, STEM faculty, and PhD students from Trinity College, Dublin.
Students interested in the STEM fields have the option of participating in a summer enrichment program at Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin. Founded in 1592, Trinity is the oldest university in Ireland and is recognized internationally as Ireland's No. 1 university. For over 400 years, this historic university has been a world leader in high-quality, internationally-recognized education. Some of the most famous people in Irish history have been educated here: writers like Oscar Wilde and Samuel Beckett; scientists like William Rowan Hamilton and E.T.S. Walton, who won the Nobel Prize for splitting the atom in 1951.
As API participants, students will work alongside Irish students, STEM academics, and PhD students from Trinity College to design mathematical functions, build micro-controlled projects, experiment with Newton's Law, and more! As a Walton International Alpha, you will embark on a STEM educational journey while experiencing all that Trinity has to offer as a prospective undergraduate student! Students will live in double rooms at Trinity Hall, Trinity's freshman residence hall for undergraduate students. All meals will be included, and a wide range of cultural and social activities will be provided in the afternoons and evenings. Weekend excursions will also be included.
