As a former CXC Registrar urges Bajans to get into Agriculture, TV Series inspire Belizean student for Science: Benefits of SPISE 2014 by Caribbean Science Foundation

There are 22 students from across the region (four are Bajan) along with various experts are in Barbados for next few weeks developing skills to create a new wave of entrepreneurship through scientific creativity.

Stimulating technology?based entrepreneurship ? by identifying and funding science and technology projects in new and existing enterprises that are relevant to the economic development needs of the Region.

Stimulating technology-based entrepreneurship – by identifying and funding science and technology projects in new and existing enterprises that are relevant to the economic development needs of the Region.

Accelerating education reform that supports technology-based entrepreneurship – by promoting and funding programs that:

1. Focus on the STEM disciplines.
2. Business & entrepreneurship training.
3. Foreign languages and communication skills in schools, universities and colleges.

Providing scientific and engineering advisory services to Caribbean governments – by working with CADSTI to leverage the expertise that resides in the Diaspora. The CSF is seeking to boost diversification of the economies of the Caribbean Region by harnessing science and technology for economic development, by helping to raise the standard of living.

Spearheaded by MIT-trained and Barbadian-descent Dr Cardinal Warde, the CSF is looking to generate ForEx investiture towards this region via the use of STEM or Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Meaning new generations of young Caribbean people would, through strategic partnerships, be able to learn how to craft mobile Apps - rather than look to use someone else's and make someone somewhere else rich.

Via STEM and the CSF we can make Agriculture exciting, according to the Director General of the OECS, Didacus Jules, who addressed both teaching assistants and pupils in an impromptu address, he observed how even Barbados can join in on profits to be made in reducing the Barbadian food import bill {CLICK ON FOLLOWING ICON FOR FULL AUDIO – SMARTPHONE OR TABLET USERS, PLEASE CLICK ON Mr Jules‘ NAME}

One of the Barbadian students, Sean Gloumeau - 2nd from Right, with parents, Dr Warde and a representative from the CBB. SPISE 2014 continues developing business ventures built on science and technology in the Caribbean. This as the CSF devises Educational materials & pathways that stimulate and promote science, technology and innovation in the region's youth.

One of these pupils, Ms Digna Ramirez, came from Belize and her interest in Science was inspired by not just one but 2 popular TV series {CLICK ON FOLLOWING ICON FOR FULL AUDIO – SMARTPHONE OR TABLET USERS, PLEASE CLICK ON Ms Ramirez‘ NAME}

One of the highlights of the program is the Final Projects Presentation. On this day, all the students will showcase their newly acquired STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) skills to an audience of sponsors, family and friends, the press and the general public. These student project presentations include: live robotics competitions, renewable energy demonstrations, business plan presentations, and skits in Mandarin...

The presentations are scheduled to run for the entire day. The hands on robotics and electronics competitions tend to be the most exciting aspects of the program, and the audience tends to get involved – cheering on and encouraging the students.
