When the pandemic reached the United States, many people found themselves staying at home in quarantine to avoid the spread of COVID-19. With more time on our hands than usual, quite a few of us took to binge-watching favorite shows or finally getting to tasks we had put off.
However, many people across the nation decided to try a little something new. With access to free classes just a few keystrokes away thanks to Google, people were turning to online classes for free instruction on interests such as how to bake, photography, or arts and crafts. So what was the most popular googled free class in your state? The team at VerizonSpecials decided to find out.
