School May Be Out, But Learning Is Still In

Schools have closed and the summer vibes are taking over… but learning is definitely still in. The past few months have accelerated digital transformations in the educational sphere, and online learning is the new norm. The youth should use this time to become more acquainted with the skills and topics that would benefit their futures and make them more competitive.

As part of the BDD Academy’s efforts to continuously improve STEAM skills in the younger generations, the 2020 Edition online summer camps have just been launched.

This year, with a little twist, the online learning programs and essential skills courses, will prepare children, ages 6 to 18, for the jobs of tomorrow.
