Maker Camp is Coming!

Maker Camp 2012

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! Just follow MAKE on G+:  g.co/makercamp
