First-of-its-kind STEAM school set to open despite construction delays

Posted: Sunday, July 9, 2023. 7:25 pm CST.

By Breaking Belize News Staff: In an encouraging development for the field of education, the Itz’at Steam Academy, a high school primarily focused on the STEAM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math), is set to open its doors in August. The academy, located within the ITVET compound, is currently still under construction, causing some trepidation among accepted students and their parents about the school’s readiness for the upcoming academic year.

However, reassurances from Francis Fonseca, the Minister of Education, have helped to alleviate these concerns. In a recent statement, the minister confidently asserted that the academy would be operational in time for the start of the school year.

“A timely question, I just visited it [this week]. I am assured that it will be ready,” said Fonseca, addressing concerns about the construction timeline. “The entire structure will not be ready in August, but one of the buildings will. So, we will start with one of the buildings, which should be completed at the end of July.”

It seems the project is being handled with urgency, with a large workforce dedicated to ensuring its timely completion. “There’s a lot of work going on there,” Fonseca shared, “I think they have like 96 people working on the building with a sense of urgency so I’m confident we’ll be able to start.”

According to the minister’s timeline, the remaining structure will be finished by the end of August. This suggests a phased approach to the academy’s launch, with initial instruction set to commence in the completed building, while construction on the remaining building is wrapped up.

The Itz’at Steam Academy, a pioneer in its focus on STEAM subjects, is a promising development for students looking for a specialized education. This news should be a sigh of relief for the students and parents who have placed their faith in this innovative educational project. Despite the logistical hurdles, the academy’s determination to commence the academic year as planned speaks volumes about its commitment to its students’ education.
