First Maker Camp Field Trip Today!

The VIRTTEX driving simulator at Ford

Today, our campers will be taking their first ever #FieldTripFriday. We’re all going to +Ford Motor Company to take a virtual tour of their Innovation and Research Lab. We will also be joined in the Hangout On Air by the inspiring group of young makers who created +The Viper, a sci-fi flight simulator. Tune in at 12pm PDT/3pm EDT!

To participate, join the Hangout on Air at 12pm PDT by visiting the +Make Page. Leave us comments at the bottom of the post (preface your Q&A with “QUESTION” and “ANSWER” to get the attention of the online counselors). To participate in the Jr Counselor Hangout at 1:30pm PDT, add +Make to your G+ circles and add a comment to the bottom of the Hangout on Air post and we’ll add you to our circle.
