Science fair supported

Area
businesses have rallied around the annual Rotary Central Science Fair.

“Our
sponsors deserve a huge thank you for their generous support of the Fair this
year.  Cayman National Bank, Caribbean
Utilities Company, Greenlight Re, Crusader, AL Thompson, LIME, the Ministry of
Education and the Dart organisation have all been incredibly generous in their
support of the Fair and really make this a special event for the students and
schools involved,” said Rotary Central President Paul Byles.

He
was speaking at a formal meet and greet held Tuesday at Camana Bay.

Mr.
Byles also gave credit to the schools for their involvement and enthusiasm.

“It
takes the hard work of a great many people to make the science fair such a
successful event. A huge thank you must go to all of the teachers and administrators
in the schools, as well as to students and parents participating in the fair,”
he said. 

Many
of the students’ volunteer mentors were also present. They provide support and
guidance to the students on their various projects and share knowledge and
experience to assist with the students’ approach to the projects.

Mr.
Ray Jones of UCCI, spoke about how to approach the Science Fair.  The students in attendance seemed very
excited and enthusiastic as they spoke to mentors about the projects they were
planning, and Rotary Central expects another fantastic display of creativity in
the final projects presented this May.

Also
participating were many of Rotary’s Science fair Committee including the club’s
Vice President Fiona Moseley, Director Ravi Kapoor and other Rotarians.

The
science fair is a competition that is held annually in the Cayman Islands to
generate interest and excitement in the scientific fields and introduce
students to new career opportunities. 
Students will compete for major cash prizes, which will assist them with
future college studies.
