Virtual STEM Camps

Connect to Ireland’s online STEM Community

TWC Virtual is our new online home where our STEM community can come together. It is made up of the ‘Nucleus’ (the learning hub) and several unique team channels where Alphas engage is STEM sessions facilitated by Trinity’s undergraduate and postgraduate community.

At TWC virtual camps, Alphas partake in live, interactive physics, math, technology and engineering sessions, which take place either mornings or afternoons Monday-Friday. These camps are designed to fun and challenging bite sized experiences that nurture the learners STEM interests and give them a taster of the Saturday Club experience. Uniquely, while experiencing this camp in a virtual format it provides an excellent opportunity to develop the learner's digital literacy, alongside skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, teamwork and communication.

Who can apply? 
All secondary school students who have completed their 1st year of secondary school. See specific camp information below for eligibility.

Student Testimonial 
‘I believe the best experience I had with this virtual camp was getting to meet other people and talking with them, knowing they have the same interest in STEM like me.’
The whole Walton Camp was a great experience! I enjoyed each section of the course and learnt a lot. The instructors were very good at explaining things’

It surpassed my expectations. It made me look at all the subjects in a different light and realised that the four subject all tie in together.
