The Khan Academy goes to camp

This free camp is an experiment by Khan Academy founder Salman Khan to test the possibilities of both online and offline education. Mr. Khan says he’s going to be documenting his experiences, so that he can share whatever works with other teachers to try out in their own classrooms.

The camp runs for two weeks long, and the participating students of different ages get to collaborate on fun learning tasks such as taking apart household electronics, building robots and learning about probability by making bets in a make-believe casino!

Doesn’t that sound like a blast?
