The summer is not an end to education though schools are on break but rather a great opportunity to continue studying and to learn even more. There are lots of apps and websites that can help adults including Great Courses ($), Coursera ($ and free), and Khan Academy (free). Opt into something unusual and fun like free online acting classes or similar topics available online. Kids have options too. Check out these great math apps for kids. This site discusses free online art classes for younger kids.
