Google india is now starting something new with the technological advancement amongst children by rolling out a brand new initiative targeting the little ones to make them more productive in their long summer breaks. ‘#SummerWithGoogle’ is the new program which is an educational programme but exciting to take on learning the use of futuristic tech to enrich young impressionable minds.
Google has come with a new idea to ensure that Indian kinds are utilising their time in a productive way or not. They have launched a new educational programme for both children as well as parents for this summer vacation. They will release one assignment every week which will consist of various Google products like Google Earth, Google Translate and Google Arts and Culture. This initiative is named as #SummerWithGoogle designed for teenagers between the age groups of 13-18 years to engage them in various productive activities involving the different products of Google.
These assignments will consist of developing an application to share their summer experience. “After four weeks, 100 children will be chosen along with an accompanying parent to visit our campus in either Delhi or Hyderabad to attend an interactive workshop. Sunita Mohanty, Google India Director said that this is the first time in India that such kind of programme is launched and along with that Google is urging for more and more parents to join along.
Google has written a letter to parents to come forward for this initiative. They say, “The road to the summer camp will include four assignments that will make the ‘summer of 2018’ last a lifetime.” Each of the assignment will teach the youngsters to be internet savvy and encourage them to make the right use of the search giant and its products. Though these challenges might be difficult but at least it is challenging and will also provide great opportunity for kids. It is like an internship of sorts which involves teaching the kids the way to use their products as well as designing their own.
