Best known for our annual summer camps, NERDIES™ provides a series of week-long camps for kids ages 9-16 from June through July throughout Northwest Arkansas. We’ve partnered up with art museums, public and private secondary schools to bring hands on, STEM-based educational experiences in the areas of robotics, animation, movie making and more.
NERDIES™ also provides training in the digital arts in schools for a semester at a time. We contract with secondary schools from Fayetteville to Bentonville to bring the same training we offer in our summer camps right into the classroom. Our instructors are industry professionals and have taught in locations such as The New School, Arkansas Arts Academy and Old High.
We’ve added two new offerings in 2019. One of these is custom workshops. Don’t see what you’re looking for in our list of camps? Can’t make it to one of our camps? Scheduling conflicts? NERDIES™ now has you covered. We offer small group sessions that are tailored to support a specific project or need. Send us an email if you think you could benefit from one of our workshops.
The other offering we added this year is a series of community outreach efforts. We recently partnered with The Girl Scouts of USA to introduce them to the digital arts during their early career expo; and we are currently developing an after-school program for the Teen Action and Support Center. Whether you are a for profit business or a nonprofit, we want to work with you.
