STEPS IS GOING VIRTUAL!

We'd like to begin by thanking you for your continued support in these uncertain times. As you know our programming is usually local in Jamaica, but as the world copes with COVID-19, SOSA evolves. For seven years we have offered an on the ground, hands-on experience for our students, but in 2020, STEPS is going virtual! Despite being spurred by the pandemic, in actuality, we will actually be accomplishing a long-term goal of providing international exchange, through virtual interactions among underserved and under-resourced youth in Jamaica.

Students from the anywhere in the region are currently registering to participate in our two-day workshop that showcases virology, epidemiology and computer engineering, with at least 50% of participant space allotted to Jamaican students. We will be exploring the study of viruses, how humans track diseases, and computer science, with team discussions among primary/middle school aged students. In just a short time we already have hundreds of applicants, and look forward to providing our cohort a unique and enriching experience. 

Stay tuned to hear about how our pilot virtual event goes! Thank you again for your continued support. Without you, we would not be able to get our programming off the ground ….…(no pun intended)!
