Samsung, a company that has always been dedicated to the development of projects in the field of digital education for young people, continues its commitment to students in our country, through launch of the Samsung Summer Camp project.
It’s a summer educational workshop, active in June and July 2020, dedicated to all children between 8 and 10 years old and designed to offer young students the opportunity to continue to meet, share and learn while playing even after the end of the school year. With Summer Camp, Samsung is experimenting with a new way of using technology, enabling different creative experiences, fostering inclusion and sharing and encouraging the development of important skills for new generations.
The initiative is divided into virtual lessons of around 2 hours with lessons, to follow from home or outdoors in a park in your city, with musical preparations, fun / creative workshops and psychomotor activities, which set creativity and body, emotion and senses in motion, you allowing to discover new forms of relationships and communication. The Samsung Summer Camp will take place every week – from mid-June – on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 9.45 am to 12 noon.
the Entries are open to all children from 8 to 10 years old and parents interested in registering their children for the Samsung Summer Camp can send an e-mail with the name and age of their child, the name and surname of the parent responsible for registration and a valid e-mail address to [email protected]
Samsung Summer Camp: objectives and course structure
The aim of the Samsung Summer Camp is to offer stimuli that set creativity, sociability, emotion and curiosity in motion, to discover new points of view. What has been experienced will activate the senses by creating a bridge between inside and outside, broadening the perspective and perception of spaces. The workshops will be led by expert educators and the activities will be different each day, distributed according to the following training courses:
- Fun and creative workshops: you don’t have to go too far to discover wonderful things… all you need is your own bedroom or wooden floors under the house! The participants’ curiosity and creativity will be stimulated, leaving them free to listen to their emotions, at home and outside, and to observe and interact with their environment in all its many forms.
- Music workshops: you can learn to build simple musical instruments to play together and alone. In addition, the power of rhythm and timing on the body, the beating of hands, feet and timed movements will be experienced, discovering how fun body percussion is and “sounding” stories together!
- Psychomotricity laboratory: the activity develops and promotes the development of relational, emotional, motor and cognitive skills. The educators will invite the children to build motor circuits together which will set the body in motion and develop creativity, by interacting with generic objects and, finally, with their own “favorite” game.
“Already in recent months, Samsung Italy has engaged in various intelligent learning activities, designed in the spring to support, with additional educational tools, teachers and students of the Italian school in their distance learning activities, during the long lockout period due to the urgency of the spread of Covid-19. In continuation of our commitment, with Samsung Summer Camp, we are delighted to be able to offer all Italian children a new opportunity to meet up even after the end of the school year and to learn new concepts through fun activities useful for stimulating creativity, sense and body“, Declares Anastasia Buda, responsible for corporate social responsibility of Samsung Electronics Italy.
