Welcome to the GCE MyCOE Youth TechCamps Wiki!

Through the GCE MyCOE Youth TechCamps program, outstanding high school students in the United States were selected to form teams with their counterparts in Bolivia, Panama and South Africa. The idea behind the program is for these students to collaborate online and in person at one of three rounds of training events in these countries to address the theme of GeoTechnologies for Climate Change & Environment. Students participating in this program will be given academic preparation, orientation, cultural exchange activities, mentoring and training in the use of geotechnologies such as online mapping, community GIS, mobile GPS and crowd-mapping. Youth work will be featured in an online project fair and showcased at national venues. 

We will be using this wiki throughout the duration of the TechCamps program to communicate with one another, share links, post files and make important program announcements. Please be sure to bookmark this page!
