Launched in July 2016 and running until the end of August 2016, the Google Summer Squad is a program that caters to the curiosity of the young. Answering questions such as ‘how does technology make computers come to life just by using code?’, the London event is currently taking place at Currys PC World on Tottenham Court Road, Currys PC World Thurrock and Currys PC World Fulham.
Offering specially designed in-store activities, inquisitive kids will be able to participate in learning to code for gaming, crafting code so they can create a digital playground, discovering the exciting world of robotics through lego and using code to make music. Open to 8-13 year olds, the Google Shop will keep your little one busy with both interactive and educational activities.

With so many activities to choose from, we recommend the Computer Maze Challenge. It encourages children to think like a computer and work as part of a team. With no programming involved, its objective is to teach computer science in the most fun way possible.

Everyone who attends a session will get a free Google Summer Squad T-shirt to wear and a badge for every completed session.
