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.
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.
We’ve added two new offerings in 2019. One of these new offerings is custom workshops. Our workshops are 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 assignment.
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.
