Practically, a leading experiential learning app designed to make learning immersive and increase retention in STEM subjects for students of classes 6 to 12, has announced a four-week-long Summer Workshop for students in the Middle East. The workshop will consist of four highly engaging online courses in Scratch Programming, YouTube Pro, Chess, and Robotics to keep students effectively occupied during their summer vacation. The carefully crafted courses guided by highly qualified teachers will enable students to develop new interests and enhance their skill set, equipping them for the jobs of the future, keeping in mind global industry trends.

The YouTube Pro course will help students learn how to start and run their own YouTube channel. They will be able to create high-quality videos and learn how to post and optimise videos with the correct titles, descriptions, tags and thumbnails. 

The Chess course will explain the rules of the game and help students improve through interactive online lessons by international players and national chess coaches. Students will learn openings, endgames, strategy and tactics to master their chess skills.

Workshop starting 7 July 2021 will offer four courses: YouTube Pro, Scratch Programming, Chess, and Robotics

The Robotics course aims to train students in building a smart bulb that can be controlled using Google voice assistant. Students will learn all about various software and equipment, which will help in understanding the recent technologies in automation.

Part of the proceeds collected will be donated towards Covid-19 relief efforts in India

The Scratch Programming course will focus on educating students on how to think computationally. Students can design and create games and applications using Scratch Programming. Not only will students use the technology in their lives, but also gain digital confidence and get inspired to create new games and apps.
