Finding the bright side of 2020 may feel challenging some days, but the variety of free classes and enrichment opportunities available to kids online is definitely a win. In a year when summer slide feels like it started in March, it's great to be able to learn from institutions normally out of reach. Kids can get crafty in art classes at New York's MCNY X Project Kid, whip up recipes in cooking class at Fresh Bites for Kids, learn marine biology at Santa Monica's Heal the Bay Aquarium, or write music with Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame.

There are plenty more free science, art, dance, technology, and cooking classes below. For more options to enrich the long days of summer, check out the free and low-cost classes on Poppins@Home, our Giant List of Top Virtual Summer Camps, 20+ Free Online Summer Camps, or How to Make Summer Camp at Home Fun.
