Best Buy Expanding Teen Tech Centers
Best Buy, building on what it calls the success of its Teen Tech Center in Minneapolis, Chicago, Miami and San Antonio, this month opened new ones in Seattle, Jersey City, New Jersey, and Washington, and will open an eighth, in Denver, this week.
Best Buy described the concept in a blog post Tuesday:
Housing state-of-the-art technology, Best Buy Teen Tech Centers are free after-school programs where teens can play, discover and learn about a variety of topics including graphic design, digital photography, audio and video production, game and app development, film-making and much more. Teens can also attend workshops led by Geek Squad Agents and other experts in technology, giving teens the opportunity to express themselves in an online global environment. The centers continue to lead the way when it comes to helping teens develop 21st century skills by giving them access to technology in a hands-on environment.
