Best Buy’s Geek Squad continues its quest to demystify technology and nurture innovation, this time empowering Philadelphia middle- and high-school level girls and boys.
The Geek Squad Summer Academy program™, now in its 6th year, is a community-supported tech camp during which local Geek Squad Agents join forces with Camp Fire USA to engage Philadelphia young people in a multi-day experience teaching them to use technology to spark their inner creativity and nurture innovation.
The Geek Squad Summer Academy program is unique for bringing knowledge to youth in their communities, rather than the other way around. Tailored for students in Philadelphia, camp sessions will feature customized modules that dive deep into computers, smart phones, MP3 players and other devices so students literally get into the guts of the technology they use every day.
More than 150 kids will take part in Philadelphia’s one of a kind tech immersion sessions.
