The Innovation Camp is a kid’s camp focused on the development of 21st century skills. The program was designed for children between the ages of 7 and 12; however, it could be easily adapted to fit other age groups. The Innovation Camp incorporated frameworks such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the Government of Aruba’s human-centered national innovation plan Aruba Innova 2030. These frameworks insured that the participants could immerse in various challenges that our island is facing and come up with real possible solutions.
The weeklong program consisted of two cycles each day with the two age groups. The activities included, The SDG Board Game, Design Thinking, Coding and Robotics, Creativity, Zero Waste Workshop, Plastic Recycling Workshop, Coral Reef Conservation Workshop, and Food Systems Aruba. The program allowed kids to experience the real challenges that the island is facing and guided them to create their own sustainable solutions.
Aside from the children’s participation in the program it offered the opportunity for future teachers currently in training to get hands on experience during the Innovation Camp. These group of students based their school project on the findings of the Innovation Camp.
