Kids sure do ask a lot of questions. Among them: How do fish talk to each other? How far away is space? Why do bugs glow? Why do I get brain freeze? Where does lava come from? Why do guitars have holes in them? Why does pepper make me sneeze? Where is a dog's bellybutton? Why do tigers have stripes? Why can't I tickle myself?
If your kid has asked you any of these far-out questions, it might be time to look into Camp Google. It's a new free online camp for kids brought to you by Google, The National Park Service, National Geographic, NASA and the Khan Academy. Wow, what a team of partners! You're bound to get some fascinating answers from fascinating experts to those questions I listed above.
The classes are designed for kids ages 7 through 10 with proper supervision, but are available for anyone interested - no registration is required. The classes come in four different sessions, one week for each. They are Ocean Week, Space Week, Nature Week and Music Week. Even better, when a child completes a course, they earn a badge for that week!
Even better, the classes aren't time-sensitive. If you leave for vacation, the courses will stay open and will be waiting for you when you get back.
Camp is set to start on July 13th. Be sure to head to the Camp Google homepage to get started!
