I have a dream… I want a Microsoft Store Field Trip

It was at the start of the school year when my daughter went to a field trip to the Apple Store. I happened to be one of those lucky parents to accompany the class. I couldn’t help but admire how smart is of Apple to open their doors to the future buying force. It was 10AM when we arrived. The kids were given yellow t-shirts and split in teams of 4-5 kids and the fun began. One Apple store employee was designated to each team- they took videos of the kids doing faces, poses and having fun… on an iPad.
Than the iPad was connected to a Mac and using the Apple software there was a cute little trailer created. The movies were burned into CDs and each child was given a copy of their own team trailer. The kids were ecstatic. Every child wanted an iPad, a Mac and Apple video software. I saw a parent buy right there on the spot a Mac. This is a level 1 dangerous-to-the-rest-parent. I heard Mommy, I really want to make videos. I really need a Mac.

And the Apple store offers these field trips to elementary schools all the time- our school takes the students every year… this is a great cultivating experience. Children embrace technology and they will be soon of age to buy. You have the cool factor working too.

I have a dream… I want a Microsoft Store Field Trip. I want Microsoft to invite elementary school children and spoil them the way Apple does. I will sign up for this field trip, I will take photos and I’ll probably be a level 1 dangerous-to-the-rest-parent :)

P.S. By the way, I’m ashamed to say but I still haven’t visited a Microsoft Store myself. Waiting for the field trip.

But maybe you can add a little more in the way of content so people might connect to it better. Youve got an awful lot of wording for only having one or two photographs. Maybe you can space it out better?”
