NOT YOUR TYPICAL TECH SUMMER CAMP

Geek Squad & Magic Johnson Community Empowerment Center

Offer Tech Immersion Session in Prince George’s County, MD!

WHAT:              Best Buy’s Geek Squad continues its quest to demystify technology and nurture innovation, this time empowering Prince George’s County 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 Magic Johnson Community Empowerment Center and Elizabeth Seton High School to engage young people in a multi-day experience teaching them to use technology to spark their inner creativity and nurture innovation.

 

WHY:                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 ages 10-17 in Prince George’s County, 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.

 

WHO:               Geek Squad is a national 24-hour task force dedicated to helping people make the most of their technology.

 

WHEN:             June 11 & 12, 10:00am-5:00pm
