Wiregrass Georgia Technical College held the 2014 Geek Fest inviting 625 students to their campus Thursday afternoon.
Students had a chance to participate in activities that involved web designing, 3D animations, robots, video production, video game programming, and building computer parts.
Berrien High School student Trinity Eady said, "They showed me how I can use computers and how to program robots, which is something I'm interested in. "
Dawn Squires, a Computer Science Teacher at Brooks County High School, says her students have shown interest every year she brought them to Geek Fest. She adds that the workshops give students a taste of a career path they might not be able to experience at school.
10 Schools attended the Geek Fest including; Berrien High School , Brooks County High School , Coffee High School , Fitzgerald High School, Georgia Christian School, Lanier County High School , Lowndes High School, Maceo A Horne Learning Center, Newbern Middle School, Valdosta High School.
