Dublin City University will become home to the Mobile Newton Room, in partnership with Boeing and FIRST Scandinavia, for three weeks in May 2022.

The goal of the Mobile Newton Room is to demonstrate an exciting and quality-assured method of STEM education to communities around Europe. This is the first time the Newton concept will come to Ireland and will feature three professional flight simulator panels.

DCU is known for its innovative approach to STEM education and the Mobile Newton Room will provide an excellent opportunity for secondary level students to visit the campus to experience STEM education in a new and exciting way. 

Not only is DCU a strong proponent of advancing STEM education with the DCU-led STEM Teacher Internship (STInt) Programme, which provides pre-service STEM teachers with the opportunity of a paid-internship experience in STEM focused roles and careers in global corporate firms, it is also home to highly regarded undergraduate and postgraduate courses in aviation management.

The state-of-the-art Mobile Newton Room will be open from May 9th until May 27th and be located on the University’s Glasnevin campus. It will be accessible to Transition Year students in secondary schools from across the country, with bookings made via a dedicated Newton Room website which is now live.

Schools who sign up for the Mobile Newton Room will spend a full day on DCU’s Glasnevin campus, with lunch provided. They will take part in two modules over the course of the day, including a rescue mission and completing a flight in advanced flight simulators.
