Microsoft today announced five new YouthSpark Summer Camps that will be held in Microsoft Store locations across the U.S. and Canada. Created for students ages 8 and up, anyone can attend including parents, teachers, and siblings.
The Summer Camps will include one, two, or four two-hour sessions, and will run from May until the end of August. One is called "Create a difference in your world", and it will show kids how to "develop am actionable plan for a humanitarian effort" and drive fundraising.
There's another Summer Camp that shows students how to make a talking robot with Ohbot. The eight-inch-tall robot has seven motors, kids will learn to "apply computational thinking" to learn how to bring the robot to life.
There's another one that will allow students to make their own movie, using 3D and Windows Mixed Reality. Another Camp will focus on coding in Minecraft, and there's one for kids as young as six years old to learn to start coding.
