"" During the Field Trips, students will create their own digital projects and explore how they can think like an engineer, covering everything from coding and robotics to transport and the solar system."
I was being sarcastic because this initiative deserves it. It also deserves scorn, which I will now deliver.
Anything that can be taught in an Apple Store can be taught in an actual school. If Apple were even halfway serious about it, they could get one real-life engineer to go to the schools and talk to the children, and do all the creative stuff there. The children will be at school anyway for the rest of the day. Instead, we move all of the children, and whoever is teaching the course, to a different location that is ill-equipped for this sort of teaching, and do it there. This could be used as an example to teach the children about inefficiencies in the transport network, of course.
When universities do outreach (the real kind based on altruism, not the kind based on PR and trying to get kids to love your brand) we send people to the school. Sometimes we bring children to the university so they can see what it's like. Going to Apple laboratories might be interesting, going to a shop certainly is not.
You exalted me to 'Read'. I humbly suggest you 'Think'. Not necessarily Different, just At All.
