Over three hundred (300) children between the ages of six (6) to nine (9) years old participated in this
year's TechnoKids camp. The camp, which is an initiative of the Ministry of Tertiary Education and
Skills Training, is in its second year. On Saturday 9th August, 2014, a special graduation ceremony
was held at the National Energy Skills Center (NESC), Pt. Lisas, for these young campers.
Featured speaker at the graduation ceremony was Senator the Honourable Fazal Karim, Minister of
Tertiary Education and Skills Training who stated that the TechnoKids camp "helps kids [to] improve
their computer skills and engage in interactive learning - all in a social fun context. The camps aim to
expand upon the ICT units that children learn in school with sessions designed to teach them new
programming skills which are progressive, fun and educational."
In an effort to include children from several communities, TechnoKids camps were spread over a
wide geographic area. These venues included campuses of The University of Trinidad and Tobago
(UTT), College of Science, Technology and Applied Arts of Trinidad and Tobago (COSTAATT), Metal
Industries Company Limited (MIC), Youth Training and Employment Partnership Programme (YTEPP)
and NESC; all agencies under the purview of the Ministry of Tertiary Education and Skills Training.
TechnoKids camps also received sponsorship from Blink/Bmobile, Petroleum Company of Trinidad
and Tobago (PETROTRIN), Microsoft Trinidad and Tobago Limited, the National Schools Dietary
Services Limited (NSDSL) and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).
Young campers were exposed to programming and computing technology with learned tutors, while
in a controlled environment. This year's TechnoKids camp was expanded to include animation. Also
addressing the audience, at the graduation ceremony, was the Honourable Rudranath Indarsingh,
Member for Couva South and Minister in the Ministry of Finance and the Economy.
