STUDENTS GET INSIGHT INTO LUCELEC OPERATIONS
Hundreds of students from across the island this week visited the St. Lucia Electricity Services Limited (LUCELEC) Cul-de-Sac Power Station.
First, an Open House in observance of LUCELEC’s 50th Anniversary was held from Tuesday November 18 to Thursday November 20, 2014. Over three hundred primary and secondary school students were expected to attend the activity.
Students were taken through the various parts of the Power Station gaining first-hand knowledge of how LUCELEC produces and transmits electricity to homes and businesses.
In addition, on Wednesday November 19, the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Section of the LUCELEC System Control Department hosted a GIS Day Exhibition for Form Five students from the St. Joseph’s Convent and Leon Hess Comprehensive Secondary School.
GIS is a computer system that allows the user to map, model, query and analyze large quantities of data within a single database according to their location. The exhibition is part of world-wide observances of GIS Day and is an opportunity for students to discover how the technology is used at LUCELEC for Asset Management, System Analysis and Map Production.
Students also learned the possible GIS career opportunities available within the field.
The theme for GIS Day 2014 is “Involve, Inspire, Ignite”.
