GCE Bolivia TechCamp
La Paz, Bolivia
June 30- July 8, 2014

US Participants in the Bolivia TechCamp began their journey during orientation in Miami from June 27th-29th, then joined Bolivian students in La Paz on June 30th. Participants spent the first week learning about climate change and how to use geospatial technologies through interactive seminars and group projects. Excursions to glacier Huayna Potosí and Lake Titicaca during our first week gave the participants a first-hand look at the impact of climate change on Bolivia and allowed them to practice using GPS in the field. Our second week in La Paz included the participants working in their groups in preparation for their final TechTorrent presentations, which were phenomenal!
