Egypt's youngest changemakers are taking off to the Red Sea town of El Gouna, as the Spark Entrepreneurship Camp is kicking off their yearly marathon of workshops, sessions, and inspirational talks to help promising youngsters turn their ideas into full-fledged projects.

The camp, now running its 5th edition, will kick off on July 5th and run until July 18th, and it's open for University students and High School students interested in Entrepreneurship. 

 The 2016 edition of the Spark Camp. 

 Previously, Spark's remarkably young graduates have gone on to attend various prestigious universities including MIT, Harvard, McGill, Duke, and UPenn, as well as developed ground-breaking initiatives. 17-year-old Egyptian student Deena Moussa developed her very own product dubbed Hermostat V-Seal, which includes a chemical mechanism that can stop bleeding faster than common hospital medicine. Another company called Vound, which was cofounded by another SPARK! program graduate (who was also selected as one of StartupScene's 25 under 25 entrepreneurs), was successful in developing an Augmented Reality wearable device that allows deaf people to interpret sound waves.
