Though far from being an independent retail concept, the Apple retail stores around the country are now offering “technology introduction/education” for children.  Teachers can make appointments with their local Apple store to bring young students in and try out all of Apple´s hard and software in a learning environment.  Children, according to the new website, can create projects on the spot bring existing ones and make use of the audio/video equipment in the store.

The program is open to students from kindergarten through high school in the US and Canada.  It is never too early to plant a seed, Apple, or otherwise!
