Portugal Student Branch Leadership Camp


Portugal Section Student Branches held a Leadership Camp on February 14-16, 2014, organised by IEEE-IST SB.

On the 14 of February the participants had a group of activities to make them bond and know each other a little better for those activities and some other tasks, on the next days, where they would have to work in teams. The day ended with 2 presentations, one with a speaker from the Portugal Section and other from a YP member talking about STEP.

The main tasks were:

A – Make sure everybody had wake up and ate breakfast in time for the activities of Saturday.

B – Make sure everybody had wake up and ate breakfast in time for the activities of Sunday.

C – Prepare the dinner Saturday.

D – Prepare the lunch Sunday.

The 15 of February was the day with most workshops where the speakers where students from different student branches (speakers) who would share their knowledge through these workshops, from technical matters of a student branch to more generic ones as basic life support and public speaking.

The last day had some presentations about SB/Section interaction and some tips on how to manage a SB with the survival kit. After lunch a feedback session occurred where the pros/cons of the event were seen and to check what could be improved on the next Leadership Camp.
