Belize among 15 countries to participate in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math event hosted by FIRST

Posted: Tuesday, September 5, 2023. 10:27 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez:  FIRST is a non-profit organization that focuses on advancing Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) education.

The organization inspires young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.

Principal of Belize High School, Jamie Usher told News 5 during an interview that Belize High School has been working with FIRST since 2018.

 “FIRST is a company out of Massachusetts in the U.S. They are working to develop robotics as sports for the mind in 190 countries across the globe. So in 2018, we first got the opportunity to work with FIRST and from that first event in Mexico City, we were sold. We were blown away.” Usher said.

“So, we had a meeting with them earlier this year, speaking from FIRST Education, so they identified Belize among thousands of nominations, and hundreds of FIRSTs passed the round, and Belize was selected as one of the 15 educators doing things in STEAM across the globe. So we are excited that Belize is getting this showcase among nations that have a lot of years head start ahead of us,” Usher added.

Usher expressed excitement to be part of STEAM Belize and promoting STEAM among students and youths in Belize.
