Microsoft Store locations will offer YouthSpark Summer Camp curriculums this year, all developed by education experts in the field and with input from our local store associates to provide students with tools that matter most and emphasize real-world relevance in a fun and interactive environment. The first-ever philanthropy camp, Create A Difference In Your World, pairs technology with philanthropy, teaching students how to assemble an actionable plan to drive fundraising, volunteering and awareness for a humanitarian goal close to their hearts and community. In addition, students who attend Microsoft Store YouthSpark Summer Camps can program an expressive robot, make movies with 3D and Mixed Reality, and get an early grasp on coding with Minecraft.
Camps, which consist of either one, two or four two-hour sessions, begin in May and run through to the end of August. They are designed for students ages 8 and up, but parents, teachers and siblings are also welcomed to participate.
