Microsoft today announced that Microsoft Stores will be organizing three new free YouthSpark Camps and Classes for students, ages 8 and older. These new camps and classes in Microsoft Store will provide students with a fun and interactive learning environment.

New fall YouthSpark Camps and Classes include:

  • Productivity Tools for School: Feel empowered with hands-on, interactive learning through the planning and development of a fundraising campaign for a social project. By the end of the class series, students will gain a functional understanding of Microsoft productivity tools and applications—including Office, Windows 10 and Surface—so they can apply their new knowledge and skills to school, life and career.
  • Code and Create with CollageMe: Learn how to code in this hands-on programming camp. During the two-hour camp, students will work in a real software development environment, gaining experience with TouchDevelop. Students will use their creativity and imagination to develop a unique personal collage that can be shared with family and friends.
  • Shoot, Edit and Share with PicsArt: Learn how to transform photos into works of art with just the tip of your finger. During this four-part camp series, students will learn how to use PicsArt, an interactive editing, drawing and collage app. Available on Windows 10 devices, the app includes numerous photo-editing features, customizable filters, text options, a collage maker and a camera.

For parents, Microsoft Stores will organize Parent Camps during camp hours. While students are learning in their respective camps, parents and caregivers can attend small group sessions where they learn about the latest technology and tools available at Microsoft Stores.
