Hydroponic Farming by Waterford High School
The National Exhibition of the Sagicor Visionaries Challenge was held on Friday, March 22, 2013 on the grounds of Sagicor Life Jamaica’s head office in New Kingston. The regional initiative is supported jointly by the Caribbean Science Foundation (CSF), Sagicor Life Jamaica and the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) and seeks to ignite interest among youth to help build and integrate knowledge gained from formal and informal education to enable tomorrow’s leaders to build a more sustainable Caribbean.
