Keeping the online education in view, Google has announced 'Camp Google 2020', which is a special initiative for kids and their parents. The camp is designed to engage children to provide fun and learning experiences together. The programme offers an array of activities that combine real-world projects with virtual learning experiences.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, lifestyle changes such as online classes, lack of physical activities, though necessary have had a profound effect on young minds.
The programme includes various activities from crafting a wildlife story using augmented reality animals in Search to a virtual journey across the nation, exploring the rich craft and traditions on Google Arts and Culture platform. The kids will experience a wide range of activities that would keep them engaged throughout the programme.Also read: Google.org to support education initiatives, announces $3-mn grant
They would also be encouraged to learn about India's natural resources and how to preserve them on Google Earth and thus get introduced to the world of programming.
Google would also facilitate many virtual sessions by leading experts in psychology which would, in turn, motivate children and give them something to aspire for in the times of pandemic.
When the camp ends, students would be given a chance to win many interesting prizes too. This would include the opportunity to attend a masterclass with the YouTubers, having their prize-winning entries posted on Google India’s social handles.
