Trinity Walton STEM Programme

Emerald, in collaboration with the prestigious Trinity Walton Club, is delighted to offer a new and unique programme that allows students to enhance their STEM knowledge while improving their English language skills. 

Students aged between 13-14 and 15-17 will join a STEM camp at Trinity Walton Club, in Trinity College Dublin. They will have the opportunity to expand their scientific vocabulary, as well as enhancing their problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Learners will work in teams alongside STEM experts and engage in activities such as designing mathematical functions; building micro-controlled projects; and having fun with Laws of Motion.
