Geek Squad Academy from Best Buy provides an opportunity for students to develop tech skills, build self-confidence, spark creativity, and discover how technology can benefit them in their educational pursuits and in future careers.

Students at Geek Squad Academy become "Junior Agents" and get hands-on experience with some of the newest and coolest technology. Local Best Buy employees help the Junior Agents explore areas like:

  • Coding
  • Game Design
  • Photography
  • 3D Design
  • Digital Music
  • ... and more!

It is one thing to tell teens about a possible future in technology, but the real magic happens when you show them that they can start now. Geek Squad Academy is all about creating fun projects with accessible technology that the Junior Agents can show to their friends and family.
