EDUCATING THE NEXT GENERATION OF DIGITAL CREATIVES

 

WHAT IS NERDIES™?

NERDIES™ is a STEM-based, educational organization that brings cutting-edge instruction in visual and media arts to boys and girls from ages 9-15. Through our summer camps, in-school programs, custom workshops, and outreach efforts, we are giving young ones opportunities to discover their passion and close the gap between hands-on learning and on the job training. We are creating a pipeline for the future; a pipeline of creative talent that can lead to successful, in-demand careers in robotics, animation, design, filmmaking, and more.

Driven by the latest trends in software and industry practice, NERDIES™ not only introduces your child to science, technology, and media and visual arts; it equips your child with lifelong skills that will serve them in the future: critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, creative thinking, communication, and project management.

Join us on this adventure as we work towards educating the next generation of digital creatives one nerdtastic mind at a time.

CAMPS

Best know for our week-long summer camps, NERDIES™ provides STEM-based educational experiences throughout Northwest Arkansas. We have offered camps in the areas of robotics, animation, movie making, Minecraft and more in locations such as The Amazeum, Crystal Bridges, Arts Center of the Ozarks, and Arkansas Arts Academy.

IN SCHOOL

NERDIES™ also goes directly into public and private, post-secondary schools. Through our “embedded” or “in school” program, we coordinate with local administration to identify a topic, create a curriculum, and execute the plan for a semester’s worth of education in the digital arts. We are bringing our experts to your classroom.

WORKSHOPS

We’ve added two new offerings in 2019. One of these new offerings is our custom workshops. Each workshop is built to address the digital arts needs of K-12 students working on a specific project. We work with teachers and educators to give their students exactly what they need to successfully complete their 21st-century assignment.

OUTREACH

The other offering we’ve added in 2019 is a series of outreach engagements. We partnered with The Girl Scouts of the USA at their early career expo, “Cookie Palooza.” We are partnering with the Teen Action and Support Center to create an after-school care program for at-risk youth.
