TECHSCOUTS: The Summer Bootcamp for The Leaders of The Future
TechScouts is the first-ever accelerated summer camp to specialize in developing math, computer science, design and entrepreneurship skills to tackle challenges of the future. This year is the third annual TechScouts camp and the theme is inspired by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.
The United Nations adopted the SDG agenda. Since 2015, they have developed hundreds of partnerships for each of the 17 goals in place for 2030. They aim to envision peace and prosperity for the world to have zero hunger, good health, quality education and gender equality - to name a few.
Mentored by top industry leaders in design, marketing, business, and technology; students between 12 to 18 years old will be challenged to come up with creative solutions for the UN’s outlined SDG's for 2030. During the two weeks, students also learn how to apply key math, design, coding, and leadership skills to real-world experiences. They also gain the confidence and knowledge needed to start preparing for the jobs of the future.
When reimagining what 2030 looks like, the world needs energy, drive, and innovation of the youth to help co-create a better tomorrow. That’s why TechScout students partake in an in-depth journey through hands-on accelerated learning experiences. They go through the process of design thinking to develop solutions, ideas, projects and startups that contribute to a better, more sustainable world by 2030.
By inviting students into the conversation and providing them with the necessary tools, TechScouts aims to inspire, create and shape leaders for the world.
