Electronics and Robotics session with Dr. Cardinal Warde, Professor of Electrical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Professor Ward has been in Barbados working with students from across the region attending the 2013 Student Program for Innovation in Science and Engineering (SPISE) organized by the Caribbean Science Foundation. During the session, students will demonstrate the robots they have developed over the summer.
Through a small grant the U.S. Embassy sponsored two students from Dominica to participate in this year’s program. This intensive, four-week summer program is for promising Caribbean high-school students who are interested in studying and exploring careers in science and engineering. The goal is to help address the low numbers of Caribbean students pursuing advanced degrees in science and engineering.
