To help celebrate National Summer Learning Week, the Rochester City School District is partnering with Best Buy to bring “Geek Squad” to its summer learning programs. “Geek Squad” is being offered to approximately 200 students at Virgil I. Grissom School No. 7 on Wednesday, July 10 and Thursday, July 11, 2019. 

Twenty-Eight employees from Best Buy are serving as instructors for the “Geek Squad” Academy. There are seven classrooms set up where students are participating in a two-day technology camp aimed at getting them involved with technology and content creation. 

Students will have the opportunity to learn about 3D design, robotics programming, video, music, and photographic production along with learning how to be a good digital citizen. 

This is the 1 st year the City School District is collaborating with Best Buy to bring this program to Rochester.
