As families count down to WONDER WOMAN 1984 opening in theaters, they'll be excited to learn more about the virtual camps hosted by Microsoft Store associates, inspired by WONDER WOMAN 1984.


For these virtual camps, Microsoft partnered with Warner Brothers and the Smithsonian to create experiences that teaches basic programming to students of all ages.

The lesson plans are available on the Smithsonian Learning Labs website, and children will have the opportunity to decode a secret message and code a maze. Along the way, they’ll also learn how to use a number of Microsoft Education products, including MakeCode, Visual Studio Code and Surface Minecraft Education.

In the process, kids from all backgrounds can start learning in-demand job skills, and hopefully build on those skills in high school and beyond.

WONDER WOMAN 1984 in Microsoft Store Summer Passport 


There's also a camp inspired by WONDER WOMAN 1984 in the Microsoft Store Summer Passport to Digital Fun. These virtual camps, which are free, are hosted by Microsoft Store associates on Microsoft Teams Live events with the goal of keeping kids’ minds sharp and building digital skills throughout the summer.

In this camp, designed for kids aged eight and older, help Wonder Woman collect artifacts in the Smithsonian before time runs out. Students will use block-based coding to design and code their own arcade game to play online.

By the end, campers will have learned key game-design and coding concepts, built a playable game and published it online for their friends to check out.

The lesson plans and camps are one way to ignite students’ interest in science and technology now and show everyone today the possibilities of STEM careers—and super heroic discoveries even Wonder Woman would be proud of—tomorrow.
