GEEK SQUAD AND BROADCASTING CLUB

At Burnham we offer a multitude of ways to bring technology to life. One of these ways is our Student Geek Squad/Broadcasting Club. This multifunctioning club promotes an atmosphere of leadership and camaraderie. Students in the Geek Squad are extensively trained to assist our primary students during MAP and PARCC testing. Not only do our Geek Squad students help our younger bulldogs get acclimated to new technology; they also know how to edit, produce and report local, national, and international news. These dedicated and driven students have taken this technology club to an entirely different level! Our students are getting the highest caliber of preparation in technology for a highly successful future! Just like we open and close every news segment; everything is "for the kids, by the kids!"
