Summer break is just around the corner! And many parents struggle to come up with ways to keep their kids learning and engaged with fun activities throughout the summer months. Microsoft has now offered an help to all such parents by announcing several programs, classes and opportunities to continue the learning and fun after the schools get over this season.
As part of Microsoft YouthSpark program, Microsoft is organizing YouthSpark Summer Camps for kids at your local Microsoft retail store. These camps include activities such as Smart Game Coding and Smart Game Designing where students will learn how to build, publish and bring mobile games to life. In addition, Smart Movie Making and Smart Photo Taking offers students a chance to produce and design movies and images.
Calling all campers
Registration is open for free weekly in-store camps. Camps are broken up into two age groups for Jr. Designers (recommended for ages 8-10) and Designers (recommended for ages 11-13), so choose the camp that fits your student’s interest and sign up today.
