Putting tech-savvy teens to good use

High school geeks have something to do this summer - and there's no hacking involved.

A school district in the Sacramento, Calif., area is putting the tech-savvy teens to work.

The students are earning eight bucks an hour trouble-shooting computers for the Twin Rivers Unified School District.

Officials say the students do the work faster and cheaper than commercial vendors.

The teens also get valuable work experience.

It grows out of a pilot program at Foothill High where a student-run help desk is called the MOUSE Squad.
