The following is a press release from the University College of the Cayman Islands:
The University College of the Cayman Islands (UCCI) invites applications from eager young people aged 11 to 13 (approximately), for its highly anticipated STEM summer camp, which this year will include fun activities including computer coding, lionfish dissecting, LED badge creation, robot building, 3-D printing, and much, much more.
The hands-on camp runs at the University campus in George Town from Monday 8 August to Friday 12 August 2022 at a cost of only $200, thanks to the generous support of Enterprise Cayman (CEC), who is sponsoring the camp.
This year, UCCI is looking for 25 participants who are willing to learn, have good communication skills and a sense of enterprise. The camp is also a great choice for students who have a passion for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Each year, UCCI receives many applications, so students are strongly encouraged to apply early for this amazing experience.
Antoinette Gayle, Organizer of the University College of the Cayman Islands’ STEM summer camp, commented, “We are absolutely thrilled to once again be able to open up the University College of the Cayman Islands to eager, young students who want to learn about how fun and exciting a career in STEM can be. For only $200, students can dissect fish, build robots, learn about computer programing and so much more. Everything they make they get to take home, and this genuinely is a great opportunity. We encourage students to apply early and we hope to inspire the next generation of Cayman’s STEM experts.
During the camp, the students will be given a welcome package, activity kits, lunch, snacks, certification of participation and a pass to the upcoming STEM Carib conference, which takes place in November 2022. The STEM Carib conference is always a highlight on the Cayman community calendar and sees thousands of community members and students attend to learn about current trends in STEM fields and related industries and interact with some local and international STEM experts.
The STEM summer camp will begin on August 8-12, 2022, from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm.

Applications open on Monday, May 30 and close when all 25 spaces are suitably filled.
