“We’re very proud to stage this camp, because we feel strongly about training young minds, equipping them to operate in this new, more fast-paced world where innovation is key. We wanted to give the opportunity to young people who perhaps would otherwise not have had it, so we have asked for participation from 10 Primary schools in the corporate area.”
SVL President and CEO, Brian George commenting on the Supreme Ventures Limited (SVL) Junior Creators Summer Camp
In reinforcing its commitment to educational initiatives, Lottery giant Supreme Ventures is hosting its two week Supreme Ventures Limited (SVL) Junior Creators Summer Camp, under the tagline ‘I Think I Build I Play Smart’.
The camp will focus on the areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and will be open to children between the ages of 8 and 11 years old. A total of 120 students – 60 each week – will benefit from the Junior Creators Summer Camp.
The camp, which will be held August 8 to 19 at El Fundaciones Ltd., on Hillcrest Avenue, is free of cost to all participants. SVL will undertake all costs including transportation of the students from their locations and includes students from:
- Allman Town Primary
- August Town Primary
- Clan Carthy Primary
- Iris Gelly Primary
- Mona Primary
- Mountain View Primary
- New Day Primary
- New Providence Primary
- North Street Primary
- Patrick’s Primary School
As robotics and technology become commonplace agents of change and progress in countries worldwide, Jamaica has taken note. In line with this, the SVL Junior Creators Camp aims to increase students’ interest in technology. This is with a view to improve their performance in the sciences, which can impact their communities and the nation at large.
