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:
- Stop Motion Animation
- 3D Design
- Digital Music
- Digital Citizenship
Geek Squad Academy is only accepting proposals for Online sessions for the 2021 season. Check back this fall for applications for in-person camps in 2022!
