Thirty-five (35) projects from various Secondary Schools and the Dominica State College are on display at the Windsor Park Stadium in Roseau as part of the Sagicor Visionaries Challenge.

As part of the competition, students were encouraged to develop a project with the use of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

The projects, which will remain on display until 3PM, will be judged by a panel of eight judges.

At the opening ceremony general manager of Sagicor Cheryl Rolle thanked the Ministry of Education and the various schools for supporting the event.

“Sagicor together with the Caribbean Science Foundation and the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) are coordinating this effort in science and technology, engineering and math to enable our youths to showcase what they can do and to be able to make the Caribbean a better place, especially in the field of sustainability,” Mrs. Rolle said.

She further stated that Dominica had a total of forty-six (46) projects submitted, the most among the Caribbean islands “and for that we should be proud”.

Mrs. Rolle reminded the students that they are in a more fortunate position in terms of sustainability because they are islands like Antigua with no rivers or volcanoes so they should purse developing more agricultural related projects.

The winner will be disclosed during a prize giving ceremony at 3pm today.
