Google offers free virtual summer camps for teens

The search giant is planning six weeks of fun things to make and do for kids aged 13 or over and there’s no need to pack a bag or book flights.In fact, all they’ll need is a Google+ account and access to a PC, smartphone or tablet. Described as a series of free camps for “building, tinkering and exploring,” the Maker Camp will combine real world projects, like making toy rockets with virtual fieldtrips via Google Hangouts to locations including Legoland in Denmark and Jim Henson’s Creature Workshop. Summer camp kids will also be able to use Hangouts to talk to expert artists, makers and inventors every afternoon after completing the morning’s DIY project that promises to challenge their creative skills.
