By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On February 22, 2023, President of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), Ilan Goldfajn, and Prime Minister of Belize, John Briceño toured the construction site of the Itz’at STEAM Academy.

The Itz’at STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) Academy is a key component of the Education Quality Improvement Program II financed by the IDB and executed by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Technology.

The school will create a training ground for teachers in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) subjects and model individualized student-centered instruction.

The IDB notes that the project, an innovative proposition for Belize, is being developed in partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and will open its doors in September 2023.

The Itz’at STEAM Academy will open with a projected inaugural cohort of 70 students graduating in 2027 and is expected to grow its capacity to 300 students by 2026.
