Pandemic obliges, the 4th edition of the Techno Discovery Camp will take place exclusively online this summer. The program of activities related to the digital world is intended for young people aged 11 to 16 and is run by university engineering students.

The objective of Techno Discovery Camp since its inception is to give the tech bite, motivate the pursuit of science studies and present career opportunities in technology to young people. The main motivation remains to inspire them by making them discover technological organizations, professions and a thousand and one ways to change the world thanks to technologies. 

Each week, during the summer, several themes are offered; each with a possibility of increasing in complexity as the learning progresses (beginner, intermediate, advanced). Classes are offered in groups of 5 to 8 young people to maximize interactions. Virtual tours of companies have also been planned to introduce young people to companies that are evolving in the field of technology in all regions of Quebec.

In all, these are 24 courses which will take place every week between July and August. Among the courses offered: initiation to programming with Scratch, microprocessors with micro: bit, cybersecurity, easy recognition, conversational agents. Groups will also be reserved for girls for each theme in order to promote the awakening of their interest in technology.

The first Techno Camp was created in 2018 at the initiative of Luc Sirois and Prompt, an organization of which he was the director before becoming Chief Innovator of Quebec. Prompt's mission is to financially support collaborative research partnerships between researchers and businesses in order to strengthen innovation ecosystems in Quebec, in strategic sectors such as artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, quantum, 5G.
