You can keep learning alive and well for your kids this summer with a little bit of commitment, a few bright ideas and some help from the excellent resources available at these enriching, experience-based learning websites:
This popular coding and app writing site features high-quality online courses and other intriguing learning options for kids. It’s especially perfect for young people (and adults) who have a strong interest in technology.
This site offers a plethora of top notch education resources for parents, teachers, and kids, including the Printing Press program that allows kids to create their own booklets, brochures, business cards, and so forth.
Science Bob is a delightfully quirky and engaging learning destination featuring science experiments and experiences—plus it’s the home of the mysterious “Whatever you do, don’t click here” button. You know you want to find out more…
Whyville is a very cool destination for preteen online learning featuring “safe” social media, games, virtual worlds and more.
