Belladrum STEM Club Participates In Mini Exhibition To Give Back To The Community
On Saturday August 4th, club Belladrum participated in a mini exhibition hosted by the village’s local Community Development Council. Club members displayed some of their robot creations and tutored community children on robot building and coding using Scratch.
“Club Belladrum reflects the true spirt of STEMGuyana’s efforts to make technology club activities available to students all across Guyana, said STEMGuyana co-founder, “Ima Christian. Their Club Trainer Melissa Gordon attended our training program, she them went back to Belladrum and recruited more coaches and students. Community members and supporters in the Diaspora purchased robots and laptops for their club and members then worked together to earn their outstanding team award at the national robotics exhibition,” said Ima.
“Yesterday, club Belladrum gave back to the community by passing on what they learned to the larger community. STEMGuyana needs each one to reach one, or two or three others,” said co-founder Karen Abrams. “It’s not enough for club members to learn how to code and build robots but they must also be willing to pass on what they learn”, said Abrams. “Getting the word out across the nation will indeed take a village,” she mused.
