Lenovo and Complexity Gaming team up for summer gaming camps
Some exciting summer camp news as Lenovo and Complexity Gaming have teamed up to offer summer camps dedicated to gaming. Starting next week, July 25, the two companies will be offering a couple of two-week camps focused on creating esports content. Which will be mixed with concepts revolving around science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM), so it’s both fun and educational. (Yes, those two can exist!) The camps are exclusively for girls and underserved children, part of an initiative to increase the accessibility and diversity of play. The good news is that those who qualify to be part of the game will be able to attend with free coverage by Lenovo. Each camp will also focus on essential life-building and social skills such as safe online habits, the importance of anti-toxicity and inclusivity.
After each program, campers will have a summary project of their work, which they can take home to show friends and family about their time there.
