According to information from ELE Rwanda, the theme embarks on ‘Wireless Technologies’, a field that fits in the case of Rwanda and Africa, where mobile technology is increasingly becoming the cornerstone of socio-economic stability.

Yves Iradukunda the Chief Executive Officer (ELE Rwanda) said that it is high time students started using talents to create solutions once they are already connected to innovators or mentors in developing different projects.

It is believed that this will give the students an opportunity to discuss some of the modern technologies that are the basis of Global Positioning System devices (GPS), Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) and principles of wireless networks.

The students will also discuss how the above technologies can be applied to local challenges.

This camp is made up of students with strong leadership skills who are willing to serve the community in their field of technology (science, design, agriculture, art and other fields).

During their second week of training, they will be joined by experts from the United States of America in an effort to boost several ideas among participants.

On April 11, 2013, ELE Rwanda was honoured with the Creativity Award by The Journal Record and Creative Oklahoma, a statewide award in Oklahoma.

Creative Oklahoma is a statewide nonprofit organization that advances Oklahoma’s creative economy through creativity and innovation-based initiatives in education, commerce and culture.

The Creativity and Innovation Camp is a continuation of a similar field-tested which was successful. In the summer of 2012, engineering graduates from Oklahoma Christian University organized the first engineering camp in partnership with KIST.

The camp was aimed at increasing interest in engineering and developing the I-can-do-it-too spirit among Rwandan youth.

ELE Rwanda continues to identify a number of student-led projects in an effort to support innovation and entrepreneurship that suits Rwanda’s economic development.
