18 Jun Team Belize 2018
Team Belize is a partnership between two high schools: Caye Caulker Ocean Academy and Belize High School. Kent is the captain of his school’s Robotics Club, and has already successfully created a robot that moves objects. Jaheem is a talented artist and recently performed at the Belize Street Art Festival. His strengths are creativity and design. Daniela is a communicator, and a strong voice for female leadership in STEAM and also sport. She created the technology elements of an award-winning project in the Belize Innovation Challenge, and also presented at World GIS Day. This is Team Belize’s first year participating in the FIRST Global Challenge.
Belize’s energy comes from Mexico’s power grid. Citizens rallied behind an Oceana campaign to say “no to offshore oil drilling” including our robotics team participants. We are very interested in exploring options for renewable power resources such as wind and solar.
