Make Magazine has announced Maker Camp 2013, 30 Days of Discovery, a free online “camp” based on the Google+ social-media platform. Maker Camp 2013 runs from July 8 to August 16.

Each morning, campers are introduced to a new project, virtual field trip, or experience, led by an expert camp counselor. Materials lists are posted in advance so campers have time to gather the supplies they will need. In the afternoon, campers can join the camp counselor in a Google Hangout to talk about that day’s project or experience, share tips, and ask questions.

Campers are encouraged to share photos and videos from their completed projects. Campers can also join the Maker Camp Community on Google+ during camp and after it ends.

Last year, more than one million virtual campers followed Make on Google+, as the magazine’s staff introduced them to new projects and special maker experiences including virtual field trips to CERN, NASA, The Smithsonian, National Geographic Institute, Disney Imagineering, and Ford Innovation Lab.
