Google’s 4 week long Summer camp started today. Built for kids 7-10, this camp looks to answers their questions and curiousities. From Google’s Official blog post Sylvia Earle, marine biologist and Explorer-in-Residence at National Geographic describes her love of the ocean and the creatures she found beneath the surface.
The ocean first got my attention during a family visit to a New Jersey beach when I was three years old—a wave knocked me over! At age 12, a move to the Florida coast made the ocean my backyard, and I loved the abundance of life there—every day I encountered new creatures like starfish, sponges, horseshoe crabs, seaweed, and a wondrous array of small fish that I’d never seen before. I knew from then on that when I grew up I would be a scientist so I could keep exploring, no matter what.
The four weeks promise to keep the kids busy covering new topics every week. Starting with the ocean dive, then Space week, followed by Volcano week and last but not least – Music Week
Following Ocean Week, kids can jump into Space Week with a NASA astronaut and VSaucewhere they will help cook up space food and learn how astronauts eat in space. After that, they’ll head to Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park with a National Park Ranger and Derek Muller to learn more about how volcanoes form. And camp ends in style with Music Week, where kids can jam alongside Zendaya to learn about why music makes us want to bust a move. We hosts can’t wait to explore with you this summer, wherever you might be!
Sounds like a great Camp for kids … and kids at heart too!
