Google India on 28 May announced a fun, yet educational summer campaign that will help children across the country spend more time learning and making new discoveries, as well as teaching them how to become responsible explorers of the web.
Google says it has partnered with product leaders to bring a series of activities for parents that they can do along with their kids to make this a memorable a summer. It said that it will unveil one assignment every week for four weeks.
The assignment ranges from exploring the country in the world on Google Earth to saying Gracias and Por Favor as they learn phrases in Spanish and other languages on Google Translate, to taking dramatic virtual tours of museums to make their own gallery on Google Arts & Culture; and ultimately building their very own app to share their summer experience.
Each assignment will also carry questions on the four fundamental codes of being Internet Awesome and teach the young internet explorers a lesson or two on how to be— Internet Smart, Internet Alert, Internet Strong, Internet Kind and Internet Brave, the blog post said.
Right after the four weeks, it will host a Summer Camp at Google’s Gurgaon and Hyderabad campus where it will fly up to 100 participants along with their guardians from across the country.
“The entire campaign will combine the real-world projects with virtual learning experiences and will equip kids with the right digital skills so when they return to school post this summer, they are Internet Awesome,” Sunita Mohanty, Director, Trust and Safety, Google India said.
The assignments can be accessed on #SummerWithGoogle website and Google’s social media, the statement said.
