Camp in Google for teenagers

In fact, all they'll need is a Google+ account and access to a PC, smartphone, or tablet. Described as a series of free camps for "building, tinkering and exploring," the Maker Camp will combine real-world projects, like making toy rockets with virtual field trips via Google Hangouts to locations including Legoland in Denmark and Jim Henson's Creature Workshop.

Summer camp kids will also be able to use Hangouts to talk to expert artists, makers, and inventors every afternoon after completing the morning's DIY project that promises to challenge their creative skills.


The first week of the Maker Camp starts at 11 a.m. PST on Monday, July 7 with the final week of projects beginning on August 11.



As well as virtual access via computers, Google is also setting up a number of physical camps around the US at libraries, schools, and museums where children can come together to work on the daily challenges.

Although aimed primarily at 13-to-18-year-olds (due to the fact that Google doesn't permit pre-teens from setting up Google+ accounts), younger children are also welcome to take part via their parent's account, as long as they also have adult supervision throughout.


This is the third year that the summer camps have been offered and Google isn't the only tech company looking to help parents find interesting and engaging things for their children to do during the holidays.
Apple is also running a series of free creative summer camps at selected Apple Stores in the U.S., parts of Asia, and Europe where children can come to learn how to make films or create interactive books.
