Kids can learn to code, create and play at free youth workshops with Microsoft stores! These free programs get kids of all ages coding games and apps, creating digital art, powering up their study skills – and they’ll have so much fun they won’t know they are learning.
Stores aren’t holding in-person workshops, but they are still offering virtual training for all ages.
Some of the options are virtual tours and virtual field trips, while others are skill-based workshops. Check out the Microsoft virtual training options here!
