ACEA School's push STEM!

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) are the foundations of the industrial and corproate world. These four subjects represent the skill-set that is in high demand by employers today. With the ever-increasing demand for scientists, and innovators, STEM education holds the key. As such, The Anglican Central Education Authority continues to provide fun and educational, hands-on opportunities to unlock the minds of our students through innovative programs, clubs, and classes.

Bishop Michael Eldon School, in Freeport, Grand Bahama, is one of the four distinguished Anglican Schools to participate in the SECME Mousetrap and Water Rocket Competition held at Jack Hayward Gymnasium in Freeport, Grand Bahama. SECME which stands for Science Engineering and Communications for Mathematic Enhancement is a strategic alliance to renew and strengthen the professional capacity of educators, motivate and mentor students, and empower parents so that all students can learn and achieve at higher levels.

The Mousetrap Car competition required the students to build cars that are propelled by the spring of a mousetrap. For the Water Bottle Rocket, students must build a rocket that must meet strict predetermined specifications. The competition not only includes the item but technical drawings and reports. Bishop Michael Eldon School students proudly placed first in the Primary, Junior and Senior Mousetrap categories. In addition, students were awarded first place prizes for both Junior and Senior Water Rocket competitions and second place for the Primary category. In recognition of their efforts, students have been invited to Tennessee State University for the International competition held June 20-25, 2016.

“The ACEA recognizes the importance of having our students involved in STEM initiatives which create strong learning environments that allow them to be more creative and relevant in the ever changing global environment,” says Jennifer Basden, Chief Development Officer of the ACEA. “Getting involved in these types of activities help prepare our students and ensure they get the tools they need to further their presence in the arena of science and technology.”
