“NERDIES™ is PIXEL™’s STEAM-based summer program for young adults and children ranging in ages from 6-18. Every summer, NERDIES™ offers in-person, hands-on training for one full week in areas such as 3D animation, robotics, movie making, photography, video game development, coding for Minecraft, and more. STEAM-based education for children is a major focus of our school systems, educators, parents, and local and federal government officials. Many of our local schools, however, don’t have the expertise or equipment to introduce children to STEAM concepts in a fun and interactive manner. NERDIES™ provides that expertise and equipment and inspires children to pursue careers in STEAM fields through educational play and hands-on learning.”
