Two young people walked away from the first week of the Supreme Ventures Junior Creators Camp with scholarships valued at $50,000 each, while some 40 others finished the week strong, receiving items and gift vouchers from Sangster’s Book Store to assist them with their back-to-school expenses.
The children completed a week of exploration and hands-on practice into the world of robotics engineering taught by Marvin Hall and the Halls of Learning Team, as well as self-development classes presented by Rise Life Management. The participants had the opportunity to engage with the latest gadgets, including robots, and also got the opportunity to learn how to code and programme the cutting-edge technology.
“We were delighted to see how engaged and excited our campers were, and we were even more delighted to reward them for their hard work and discipline in grasping the concepts they were taught. The self-development aspect, which we did for the first time this year, was a wonderful addition, and the children enjoyed it so very much,” said SVL’s AVP of Group Corporate Communication, Simone Clarke-Cooper.
The $50,000 scholarship awards, a new addition to the camp, were given to the camp’s overall top-performing and most disciplined girl and boy. Other awards were given for Master Creator, Growth, Most Disciplined and MVP.
The top boy and girl were Kaeden Brown and Ashanti Gordon, respectively. The MVPs were Nasia Brooks ad Kaeden Brown. Kyle Brown and Renee Benjamin were top boy and girl for the Growth Award, and the Most Disciplined Camper was Liah Davis, while Ashanti Gordon was named Master Creator.
The Supreme Ventures Junior Creators Camp participating schools were St George’s Girls’ Primary & Infant, St Aloysius, New Providence, Mountain View, Rousseau, Holy Rosary and Swallowfield primary schools.
