CEC STEM INITIATIVE WITH UCCI
We are investing in Cayman’s youth and sponsoring meaningful STEM initiatives with a view to encouraging greater interest in mathematics, science and information technology from a young age. We have launched a programme with UCCI as sponsors of the STEM Ambassador Programme and hope to extend this to other learning institutions as and when appropriate.
With this CEC and UCCI partnership, we will also continue to look for ways to increase student interest and aptitude in STEM learning. It is hoped this deeper connection will broaden participation from schools and the local community, and inspire a more diverse STEM talent pool to grow Cayman’s ingenuity and innovation.
If you would like more information on the UCCI STEM Ambassador’s Programme, please email Kristel Sanchez at UCCI - [email protected].

CEC SCHOOLS' OUTREACH
CEC is continuing its School’s Outreach this year, visiting all high schools in Cayman and talking to teachers and students about the zone and the types of new technology-focused careers that are starting to become available in the zone. We are seeking to facilitate a new generation of technically skilled Caymanians and are working to ensure that young people get the skills they need. If you represent a school, or are a parent or student that would like to learn more, please email [email protected].
THE ENTERPRISE CAYMAN TECHNICAL ADVISORY SUB-COMMITTEE
Enterprise Cayman has created a Technical Advisory Sub-Committee (TASC) made up of technology experts, as well as members of the CEC management team and members of the Ministry of Education.
The objective of TASC is to supplement the technical skills and knowledge base available to Enterprise Cayman and to thereby assist with the realisation of Enterprise Cayman’s objective of creating opportunities for Caymanians within the Special Economic Zone. We will keep you informed on all new initiatives.
