Starting today, Honducamp.Tech, Honduras’s largest-ever tech camp for young people, will kick off at the San Jose de Carmen Institute’s Sports Arena in Tegucigalpa.
Co-run by the Honduran Institute of Science, Technology, and Innovation (IHCIETI) and the Honduran government, this three-day, overnight camp will provide 20,000 young Hondurans access to workshops in robotics, computer programming, hardware design, and technology entrepreneurship.
“Honduras is eager to join the world’s technology leaders,” said President Juan Orlando Hernandez. “Honducamp.Tech will train the Honduran youth to confront the world’s most pressing challenges with modern technological resources.”
The camp is a direct response to the region’s education skills gap and aims to bolster the region’s labor force by introducing young people to careers in technology.
