Get ready for a new kind of summer camping experience with Camp Google! This new month-long online science camp for kids begins July 13. According to their website, “Camp Google is a free camp for kids, full of fun science activities and adventures led by experts. Everyone is welcome and you can jump in anytime.” The program is four weeks long, and each week is broken up into different themes — ocean, space, nature, and music. Those who participate can earn badges for each week they complete. No registration is required and participants do not need to have a Google account.
The camp’s main mission is to get kids outside exploring and learning. Along with consulting with the Family Online Safety Institute, the engineers at Google worked with educational institutions and specialists like the Khan Academy, National Geographic Kids, NASA and National Parks to develop smart, engaging content for kids to see the potential of science.
