Smart Futures for the Adapt Centre
We recently worked with researchers from the Adapt Centre on presentations for the Smart Futures programme. Smart Futures is a Science Foundation Ireland initiative in which researchers working in various STEM areas go out to schools and give career talks to students. The Adapt researchers were such an interesting group with so much to offer students. It's incredibly important for teenagers, not only to encounter people in STEM careers, but also to meet people who didn't necessarily know what they wanted to do when they sat their final exams. The idea that you can be in a successful career despite not really having a pathway figured out in your head by the time you're 18 is an extremely important message nowadays. Best of luck to everyone we met. You'll be fantastic.
