Geek Squad Academy is designed to give youth in under invested communities ages 10-18 opportunities to develop tech skills that will inspire future education and career choices. This program allows students to envision a future where they are creators, not consumers, of the technology that powers the world.

When attending a Geek Squad Academy camp, students become "Junior Agents" and get hands-on experience with some of the newest and coolest technology, with instructors from Best Buy and Geek Squad. This two day camp experience will allow students to explore technology like:

  • Coding
  • Programming
  • Stop Motion Animation
  • Photography
  • 3D Design
  • Digital Music
  • Digital Citizenship
