When Christopher Nelson returned from his participation in the 2017 robotics championship, he was determined to make a contribution to his Den Amstel community. He and partner Kelwin Gittens decided to start a tutoring program for students in the Den Amstel community who were signed up to take the Math CSEC exam.
This week he received the results. Of his 20 students, 17 passed, an amazing 85% pass rate. 25% grade ones, 30% grade two scores, 15% grade 3 scores, and 15% grade 4 scores.
Chris is a GTI graduate who will begin UG in September where he will study for a degree in Electrical Engineering. He also earned a distinction in Math at CSEC. Not only is Chris a longstanding member of STEMGuyana but he’s also an amazing singer who recently launched his single ‘Do My Best’, a song he created to inspire his 2018 robotics teammates. Christopher is also working with a few of his STEMGuyana teammates to launch an online tutorial program with the goal of inspiring more students across Guyana who struggle with Math at CSEC.
STEMGuyana co-founder Karen Abrams stated that “Chris is exactly the example of the kind of citizen we want to help to inspire. He is a credit to our organization, his school, his church, his community, and his country. Christopher has made us exceedingly proud and he is one of several members of his community who is giving back in a huge way. We are incredibly proud of him”
