25 Jul: VIDEO: 2 Days of Tech Fun at Geek Squad Academy

Students crowded around a 3D printer, excitedly watching as the machine created small, plastic objects shaped like Pac-Man. In a nearby classroom, young people programmed robots to follow a track on the floor using laser sensors.

In all, more than 80 students ages 10 to 18 gathered at the Minneapolis Central Library this week to learn about emerging technology and computer science at Geek Squad Academy. The two-day program, taught by Geek Squad Agents, also included classes on digital music, filmmaking and digital responsibility.
