Importance of STEM education
It is undisputed that Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) have served as the source for ingenuity and innovation which drives societies. It is our belief that the gradual shift from being a developing to developed country rests on the shoulders of organisations like ours to augment the efforts of the National Government in encouraging the widespread adoption of STEM education amongst our people.
We believe that a well equipped people with STEM knowledge and skills not only provide a workforce prepared for meeting tomorrow’s increasing challenges and drive economic development but are poised to become better global citizens and function more effectively in our increasingly technologically sophisticated society irrespective of their chosen career.
STEMing Up Saint Lucia!
STEM education will be the catalyst that propels Saint Lucia’s development!
The STEM Project
The STEM Program will be exploring possible initiatives aimed at promoting the uptake of STEM subjects among our young people, especially females.
We believe that STEM empowers individuals with the skills to succeed and adapt to this increasingly complex, changing, technological world.
We envision a world where our very own nationals become inventors of Biomedicine from local sources but with Worldwide application.
Our plan is to work with private and public stakeholders to support STEM Initiatives aimed at increasing aspiration and widen participation among our youths.
