Fernander, Sales & Marketing Manager, Sun Oil Limited. “This summer, we are proud to continue our investment in our country’s youth by sponsoring a number of summer programmes and camps providing wholesome activities and educational opportunities for children.”

“Two of the summer programmes that we are proud partners with are 2022 BETA Camp and Innovative Science Summer Camp, both focused on providing valuable exposure to young people in the areas of science and technology. As technology continues to develop and shape the world we live in, we recognize this as an essential educational pillar and area of focus for youth investment.”

Wilson-Ihejirika added, “After 2 years of virtual camps, we are looking forward to a hybrid camp this year, which will take place both virtual and in person in Nassau. The camp take place July 18-30, 2022 and students who have completed either grades 7, 8 or 9 are invited to participate.”

“Innovative Science is a Bahamas-based science educational organization,” said, Sheena Davis, President of Innovative Science. “Our mission is to make learning science fun for primary school age children. We thank Sun Oil for its investment and the opportunity to increase science awareness in our community.” The 2022 Innovative Science Summer Camp was hosted at the Xavier’s Lower School campus, West Bay Street.
