Google Gearing Up for 2014 Virtual Summer Maker Camp

For the 3rd summer in a row, Google is teaming up with Make magazine to provide 30 days of Virtual Summer Maker Camp. Each week from July 7 to August 15, a new set of themed activities will be posted on the Google Maker Camp website http://makezine.com/maker-camp, and each weekday, a different maker project will be shared.

Librarians and Summer Camp Directors, as well as individuals and families, are encouraged to integrate Google Maker Camp into their activities and summer programs.

Exciting events include cool Virtual Field trips to exciting venues via Google Hangout, online sessions with celebrity Makers, and more. Posting of photos and videos of local events and creations to the Maker Camp Community Page on Google+ are encouraged.

Themes included in this summer’s Maker Camp will be Makers in Motion, Create the Future, Health & Science, Art and Design, DIY Music, and Make: Believe.

Materials needed for the projects are generally found around around the home or at grocery, hardware, or electronics stores, and lists of needed materials will be posted online in advance.
