Apple is inviting kids ages 6 to 12 to visit its retail stores this summer to learn to code, draw, edit videos and more on Mac computers at no cost.
Apple Camps will be their first in-store program and runs from July 10 to July 28. It aims to foster creativity in kids. Over the course of three days, participants will learn to:
- Make movies in iMovie
- Create animated characters using the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil and add music with GarageBand
- Learn introductory computer programming and robotics skills through Tynker and Sphero products
Another summer program launched this week, Today at Apple, hosts shorter Kids Hour sessions for parents and kids (ages 6 and up) that teach them similar skills. The “Sphero Maze Challenge” session, for example, teaches participants to code Sphero robots and guide them through various obstacles in a maze.
