The camp consisted of two modules each comprised of 4 weeks. Each week had a special theme dedicated to pioneering scientists and technologists in the field of science and engineering. The students were awarded with theme badges at the end of each week. It is important to mention that ECOSF fully sponsored the participation of meritorious and competent students in the STEM Camp, which included the registration fee and provision of training material.
