Instead of having students read a textbook or work through math problems this summer, how about involving them in building a rocket and taking virtual visit to space with NASA? Or what about experimenting with paper circuits and getting a first-hand look at Google’s self-driving car division?

Google and MAKE: magazine will launch the third year of  Maker Camp, a free virtual summer camp hosted on Google+, starting July 7. For six weeks, teens 13 years and up can immerse themselves in 30 “do-it-yourself” activities and virtual workspace tours with the likes of NASA, Google, LEGO and Blue Man Group.

This year, organizers are expanding the number of libraries, schools and museums to join the camp from 100 to more than 300, including new international locations.
