We talked about a different kind of summer camp for kids today, this one's for the "techies" in your life. Becky Harding from Junior Achievement of Utah was here to talk about the Geek Squad Summer Academy.
The Geek Squad Summer Academy program™, now in its 6th year, is a community-supported tech camp. The local Geek Squad Agents join forces with Junior Achievement of Utah and Discovery Gateway children's museum to engage Salt Lake youth in a multi-day experience teaching them to use technology to spark their inner creativity and nurture innovation. Classes include digital photography, digital music, PC build, and more.
The following subjects will be taught at Geek Squad Summer Academy events:
Students will learn about the ins and outs of computer components in a hands-on learning environment. During this class they will build a computer and learn several hardware troubleshooting techniques
Students will learn the basic foundation for computer programming with teamwork and critical thinking concepts, utilizing some of the most current technologies.
While participating in groups, students will learn the functionality of digital cameras while improving picture-taking techniques through advanced photography methods.
Students will learn how to use some of the most popular music creation techniques utilizing music creation software. Students will work together to create music by adopting some of the music technology processes that are used by musicians today.
Activity time plays a crucial part in participating in Geek Squad Summer Academy. Students are able to participate in activities that include that latest gaming systems and content available for Kinect for Xbox 360 and PlayStation® Move systems.
