B.H.S. Student Successfully Organizes a STEM Summer Camp

Belize High School student Karina Espat today successfully completed a STEM Summer Camp with youths from her community. Around fifteen children were engaged in learning science concepts and were handed their certificates. Espat also invited some of her peers from the robotics team at B.H.S. who exposed the camp goers to the fundamentals of this area of learning. The closing included a demonstration.

“As a science student myself, I wanted to promote more of this STEM concept and idea of learning to young children in the neighbourhood and so I took this opportunity to do this camp and promote it and teach these kids a new innovative way of learning. I planned every day with a different science concept. So we did concepts such as chemical reactions and the water cycle, planting and etc.”

“We have the m-bots which are the beginners and we have spike which is a little more advance which involves legos – they have robot motors attached to the legos. And then we have the more advanced, First Global, which is what we are doing right now.”

“Our presentation is solely focus on STEAM education. It is important especially since technology is constantly growing in our world. So we want to encourage all these kids from a young age, from when their minds are still growing, to incorporate STEAM into their lives because when they grow up, by having that knowledge of STEAM, it makes them ready, it makes them prepared. It builds up that habit of just everyday seeing things in a different perspective, seeing it in the STEAM type of way – in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.”
