Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        It’s that time of year when the kids are home from school for the summer…and Google is offering up some help to keep them occupied when they are indoors….or planning family travel.     There are online lessons for learning to code at csfirst.withgoogle.com,  Google’s Earth Voyager uses VR to let kids virtually explore famous places and landmarks.  Google’s LaToya Drake …

“If you’ve not been to Machu Pichu, you might say I want to learn something about that, I might want to take a look.   Or even if you have planned a trip to somewhere you’re going for the first time, this is a fantastic way to get an understanding of the environment, to learn about where you’re going and what you’re going to experience.”
