Summer camp with Google

Enough about aged people;P We are not that old. Have a sibling or know someone aged between 13-18? Someone who recently passed 10th or 12th Standard. Google is hosting competitions for this age group where finalists in competition would be invited to Google Office in India. They will also receive a certificate of Achievement and a goody bag of Google merchandise.

Here is a blog I found of 15 year old who got invited to Amazon Office in India. With the exposure at a very young age, the kid is rocking and shipping products that many around globe are using. Don’t you want your Sibling/Friends/People you know to reach similar heights? Pretty sure exposure at very young age would positively to child’s dreams. ( Still not Shared this post to people on Whatsapp yet? )

Time frame- 28th May, 2018 to 24th June, 2018
