A practicing teacher who is a Doctorate of Education student at Trinity College Dublin is looking for the help of retired principals to assist with the piloting of a national survey on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) education.


Amy Fahy, a practicing primary school teacher is working with a team of researchers from Trinity College Dublin to carry out a research project titled ‘Primary School Principals’ Views on STEM Education’.


As part of this study, a national survey is being designed. The survey is currently in the piloting stage and Amy would greatly appreciate input from experienced principals in either piloting or advising on the content of this survey.

The aim of the survey is to explore the relevance and current provision of STEM from the perspective of principals as leaders and managers of primary schools. It is planned to use feedback from the project to inform relevant funding and educational bodies.

If you are interested in taking part in the pilot study or providing advice on the content of the survey please contact:
