Is your little one is so obsessed with the iPad you're wondering why you haven't gone ahead and changed their name to Steve Jobs yet? Well, why not put that technology intrigue to good use this summer? With the kids stuck indoors and glued to screens anyway, they may as well escape the heat and do something productive at the same time.
From July 10 to 28, Apple Stores around the United Arab Emirates (Dubai Mall, Mall of the Emirates, and Yas Mall) are putting on 90-minute workshops for those aged 8 to 12. It's the perfect time for them to learn how to code, create movies and music, plus plenty more.
Here's what you can sign them up for:

Campers will start their session by sketching characters and scenes with iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, then they'll explore the basics for composing a track using GarageBand.
