The John Gray Aqua Lasers Too and Layman E. Scott Brac Bots are representing the Cayman Islands at the International SeaPerch underwater robotics challenge in North Dartmouth, Massachusetts, U.S., this June.

Six years after launching the first Minds Inspired scholarship, Glenda McTaggart now manages a programme that includes 19 scholars, work experience for 40 summer students and a busy calendar of events based on science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM.

Minds Inspired hosted students from the Cayman International School, Cayman Prep and High School, Clifton Hunter High School, John Grey High School, St. Ignatius High School and the University College of the Cayman Islands for a small, invitation-only event, with special guest speaker Kevin Mitnick, once an FBI most-wanted hacker turned most-sought after computer security consultant. This opportunity was made available to Minds Inspired scholars and the students by the 2016 Cayman Alternative Investment Summit. 

Dart welcomes back Chelsea Nelson for her fourth summer with the company. Chelsea returned to the team in March 2015 to complete the credit requirements of a university internship which counts as final credit to her degree. Chelsea is one of more than 30 work experience students Dart welcomes and invites back every year as a part of the Minds Inspired Work Experience programme.

Thirty students, representing six high schools across Grand Cayman put their mathematical abilities to the test at this years’ Minds Inspired Mathematics Challenge, the third year of the Dart sponsored event on Friday, 8 May in the Sir Vassel Johnson Hall at the University College of the Cayman Islands.
