Centriq Training Offers Youth Technology Summer Camp Like No-Other

Centriq Training Offers Youth Technology Summer Camp Like No-Other

July 11, 2016 in Centriq News / by Sara Lamb

Programming instructors will teach kids to build a website in just one week.

Leawood, KS. (July 11, 2016) – Geek Week at Centriq Training isn’t your typical summer camp! There won’t be the usual activities like swimming, hiking, camp fires and ghost stories.

This desire is what motivated Centriq to create Geek Week.Read More
