10 Online Summer Learning Opportunities

It's that time of year again for my annual list online summer learning opportunities or programs.  Being a parent of four kids, I often find myself asking what I'm going to do w/ them when school gets out.  There are lots of options out there for parents but I wanted something that would be fun as well as educational.  Over the last few years Ed Tech companies have started to offer online summer "schools/programs" that are affordable and help prevent learning.  These programs help fill a gap that sometimes is lacking over the summer months and best of all can be done at the comfort from home.

*This list is in alphabetical order
