July 21, 2016 in Corporate IT Training / by Centriq Training

IT has moved from the back office to the front office in just a few short decades and managed to embed itself into nearly every aspect of our business and personal lives.

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 Centriq Training

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.

That’s why there is a waiting list for both the Middle School camp and the High School camp.

The high level of interest in Centriq’s inaugural Geek Week summer camps stems from the familiarity that Generation Z (the kids currently in Middle School and High School) has with technology. For this generation, the desire to write code, create websites and games, and develop mobile apps, is as natural as the desire to learn to read. This desire is what motivated Centriq to create Geek Week.Read More
