Apple adds coding, robotics sessions to its Summer Camp lineup
Registration opened on Tuesday for the free camps, set to take place in the US, the UK, China and Canada in July. The tech titan has offered the program for several years now, running the camps in its stores using Apple-built hardware and software.
The new coding and robotics camps will run alongside the two existing options in which children are invited to use iMovies and iBooks Author for filmmaking and interactive storytelling.
At WWDC, its developers conference held earlier this month, Apple released a new coding tutorial app for iPad called Swift Playground. It teaches basic coding using Apple's own Swift programming language, but it will not be used in the Summer Camp program.
