“The GODSU Junior Ambassador Program has helped my son, Shamar in myriad of ways. It shift his mindset, elevated his thinking, and gave him a boost of confidence. Because of his exposure to professionals, business moguls and entrepreneurs, his goal is to pursue entrepreneurship and real estate. I am extremely pleased with the influence the program had on Shamar.” -C.M.
Our mission is to prepare students to be productive and successful future college and university graduates by developing a strong work ethic and higher-level of critical thinking skills needed to solve problems, perform projects and present conclusions while working in business industries. Whether they start their own business or are employees.
To address the accelerating need for STEM programs in the growth of science, technology, engineering and math applications outside of the classroom. The GODSU JASP will launch a summer camp for twelve, thirteen and fourteen years old middle school students. The GODSU JASP will cover a different workshop once or twice each month, from June – August 2020 with lesson plans, student presentations, guest industry visitors, tours to Kennedy Space Center and Port St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant in Florida. The students will perform activities while interacting with actual scientists and engineers who work in various fields of science, technology, engineering and math for three of the six workshops. The goal of the program is to increase interest in the STEM discipline, during middle school, for continuance through high school to pursue STEM fields when they enter colleges, universities or the workforce.
We have completed several initiatives for the GODSU JASP. We have an ongoing project titled the “GODSU Charles A. Moore STEM & Computer Program,” in affiliation with the NFFI-JA Chapter (UN DPI), where we have several schools in Kingston, Jamaica that we have pledged computers and calculators to build their computer labs and increase interest in the STEM field. In addition, we have continuously donated needed materials to deserving students of our partner schools in Jamaica.
Recently, we sponsored the Glades Middle School GODSU JASP Science Inventors’ Appreciation Day to the Cambridge Academy in Miramar, Florida. It was a pleasure having both myself as well as Dr. Jose Reyes, Nuclear Inventor and Chief Technology Officer at NuScale Power, LLC speak on the subject of the Small Modular Reactor and the Space Initiative to students of the Cambridge Academy, a rigorous program within the Glades Middle School.
The event was a success, with thoughtful and engaging questions on the part of the students, who were interested in learning more about nuclear science and space, inspiring young leaders who were interested in the field of STEM.
The GODSU JASP strives to partner with the educational institutions, companies and countries to apply the learning and use of actual field applications for students in the areas of space, robotics, computers, nuclear, etc. GODSU JASP will work to acquire innovative speakers to interact with students on their learning paths and projects.
