Camp ends for young scientists
Some of the brightest students from across the Caribbean benefitted from extra instruction in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and other areas, under a programme at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill campus over the last four weeks.
The Student Programme for Innovation in Science and Engineering (SPISE), now in its fifth year, exposed 19 students to courses in Physics, Calculus, Biochemistry, Entrepreneurship, Computer Programming, Renewable Energy, Manderin and Caribbean Unity.
Students also benefitted from career seminars at which professionals in various sectors served as role models. Team work and public speaking were also emphasized.
Today, the students got an opportunity to put all they learned into practice in presentations and demonstrations.
The students participating in the programme were from Barbados, Guyana, Dominica, Guyana, Jamaica, St Lucia, St Vincent, Trinidad and Tobago, and Martinique. This was the first year a student from the French-speaking Caribbean participated in the programme.
