Google+ online summer camp starts today

Today Maker Camp, a free online summer camp for kids on Google+, kicks off. For six weeks, they can participate in making, hacking, STEM learning and experimenting, as well as go on virtual field trips (with the likes of NASA, Project Loon, Pixar, etc.).

Each weekday morning, a new project or activity will be posted on the Google+ page—30 things to make over six weeks. Each weekday afternoon, campers may tune in to a live Google+ Hangout On Air to meet expert makers and their creations. And like last year, our Field Trip Friday Hangouts will take you to new places that few of us get to see.

Maker Camp will officially kick off at 11 a.m. PDT / 2 p.m. EDT today in a live Hangout On Air from San Francisco’s Exploratorium and will go on for the next six weeks.
