As a steadfast advocate of STEM education and youth development, leading Bahamas-based tech firm Cloud Carib proudly reaffirmed its commitment by sponsoring the camp and judging its culminating event, the BETA Camp Design Challenge.

The 2023 BETA Camp Design Challenge took place at St Johns College, Nassau, Bahamas, on Saturday, July 29.

As part of its sponsorship, Cloud Carib provided financial support, ensuring the seamless operation of the annual STEM-focused camp which brought together ten teams of enthusiastic students, all tasked with presenting innovative solutions to diversify the Bahamian economy.

During BETA Camp’s 2023 Design Challenge, Cloud Carib’s Marketing Operations Manager, M’khel Ferguson, enthusiastically joined as a judge. “We’re always dedicated to supporting STEM education and investing in the future of Bahamian youth.

“This year’s challenge focused on addressing the critical issue of diversifying the Bahamian economy. Participants were tasked with proposing groundbreaking ideas to drive economic growth and development in the country and the teams really did not disappoint,” said President and Co-Founder Trenicka Dukes.

Among the innovative ideas presented were concepts including Bahamian bush tea distribution on a global scale, limestone production, aquaculture, and textiles/clothing manufacturing.
