FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE

Belmopan. May 9th, 2014. The Ministry of Energy, Science and Technology and Public Utilities (MESTPU) wishes to extend its sincere congratulations to Digna Ramirez of Escuela Secundaria Tecnica, Siian Rancharan and Mishek Musa, both of St. John's College High School, for their acceptance into the prestigious 2014 Student Program for Innovation in Science and Engineering (SPISE) being hosted by the Caribbean Science Foundation at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus.

Since the SPISE's inception in 2012, the MESTPU has been instrumental in securing sponsorship to allow Belizeans students to participate in the program. The following Belizean students have participated in SPISE:

  • Isuare Millian of St. Ignatius High School - BTL Scholar 2012
  • Ermis Pineda of Escuela Secundaria Tecnica - Public Utilities Commission Scholar 2013
  • Omar Amjad of Edward P. Yorke High School - BTL Scholar 2013

The 2014 scholars are being sponsored by the Belize Natural Energy Charitable Trust, the Ministry of Education and the Public Utilities Commission.

The Ministry continues to promote initiatives aimed at increasing the number of Belizean students pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines. In 2012, the MESTPU partnered with the Caribbean Science Foundation to ensure Belize's participation in the SPISE program. To date, the Ministry had raised $72,000 from sponsors to support the participation of Belizean Students in SPISE. The Ministry wishes to publicly acknowledge the sponsors who have made it possible for Belizean students to attend SPISE as well as reiterate its continued support to the ongoing promotion of the pursuit of science among our young people.
