Itz’at STEAM Academy Receives Positive Feedback One Month After Launch

It’s been a month since Belize’s first secondary school dedicated to STEAM education opened its door. The Itz’at STEAM Academy was launched in September and focuses on an approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. The high school features a modern science lab, a digital media studio, and a maker space to prepare students for careers and tertiary studies in STEAM. Minister of Education Francis Fonseca explained that since its inauguration, the school has been receiving gleaming remarks from students, parents, and teachers. 

Francis Fonseca, Minister of Education: “I invite you, I encourage you to follow them on social media, their Facebook page, Itzat STEAM Academy. Incredible work, I mean, you know, we have as I’ve said we have I think 70 students enrolled. They’ve gotten off, I think, to a great start the first two months. The students are enthusiastic about the programs that they’re engaged in. It’s a new approach to education. You know, so fantastic if you look at the social media you’ll see all the activities that they’re doing on a daily basis. So, you know I think it’s a great, great start and I’m very excited about the future of that institution. And I think we have to get ready for a huge enrollment coming next year because so many parents have already said, “wow, I wish we had enrolled this year, but we certainly want to do so next year.” So, great start.”
