Do you have a teen sitting at home all summer endlessly surfing the web or flipping channels? Google+ teamed up with Make Magazine to offer at home Maker Camp for teens and it starts today! This opportunity popped up on my Google Reader this morning I am thrilled to pass it onto you. To learn more, read below or follow MAKE on G+.



Maker Camp, sponsored by MAKE magazine, is a virtual summer camp for teens, with a focus on creating, building, and discovering. We’ll be making 30 awesome projects in 30 days, here on Google+. Maker Camp is free and open to all, and runs from July 16th through August 24th.

Each weekday morning, a new project will be posted by an expert camp counselor who will walk campers through the steps to build the project. And each afternoon, campers can join the camp counselor in a Hangout on Google+ to talk about the project and look at photos campers have submitted. Then, tune in every Friday, when we’ll be taking campers on epic “field trips” via a G+ Hangout.


The best thing about Maker Camp: No registration required!
