The 12 Digital Days of Christmas: Tech Treasure #3

December4

geeky girl santa1Are you ready to follow Jolly Old St. Nick on Google Maps as he makes his Christmas Eve journey around the world? Then tune into the 10th annual Santa Tracker, Google’s super cool interactive project, on December 24 to watch this year’s Christmas trek.

In the meantime, check out Santa’s Village—a workshop full of festive activities including an advent calendar which unlocks new animations and games every day from now until the “Big Day”. For example, access geography games for exploring holiday traditions around the world, lessons on how to say ‘Santa’ in different languages and there’s even a coding project that teaches JavaScript to help Santa with his once-a-year adventure.
