Best Online Summer Programs

As a parent of four young kids, I often find myself wondering what I'm going to do with them for the summer when they get out of school.  When thinking about this and looking over many options, I noticed lots of Ed Tech companies have started to offer online summer programs/camps.  This is a fantastic way (and often inexpensive) for students to spend time in the summer and help prevent summer learning loss.  Here, then, are 9 excellent educational programs that students can take online. This list is in alphabetical order.
