Recognizing the need for a high tech workforce, the Florida High Tech Corridor Council established its educational initiative – techPATH. Involving representatives from a variety of academic affiliations and high tech companies, techPATH is “cultivating tomorrow’s workforce” in the Corridor’s 23 counties through a variety of innovative programs. These programs include techCAMPs, which offer educators experience in various high tech environments and provide tools for classroom applications.
techCAMPs are high tech workshops offered to middle and high school math, science, technology and career education teachers, to provide information about the industrial sectors that make up the Corridor. Since 1998, 58 techCAMPs have been delivered to more than 2,000 teachers and more than 400 students.
The Florida High Tech Corridor Council has designed techCAMPs that focus on the Optics & Photonics, IT, Microelectronics, Simulation and Biomedical sectors.
