Parents are already looking into the programs that will keep their kids occupied while they’re out of school for the months of June, July, and August. From art camp, to music camp, to robotics camp, it’s also the season for schools, museums, libraries, and other organizations to find fun new curricula that will surprise, delight, and educate this summer’s incoming campers.
In this edWebinar, Erin Mulcahy, Senior Product Strategy Lead, Education from littleBits, shares some of the coolest summer camp experiences littleBits has participated in to date—from the New York City Department of Education to iD Tech Summer Camps—to give us all some summer inspiration. Erin talks about how educators can use summer camp to help kids engage in increasingly complex challenges that flex their technology literacy, critical thinking, creative confidence and teamwork skills.
This recorded presentation will be of interest to elementary through middle school teachers, librarians, school and district leaders, and after-school program providers. Forget summer brain drain and get ready for hands-on learning through play!
