About Best Buy Teen Tech Center
Best Buy Teen Tech Center in Teen Central, at Hennepin County Library – Minneapolis Central, is one of four such centers Best Buy is opening in communities across the United States. Best Buy awarded a grant to the Friends of the Hennepin County Library, on behalf of Hennepin County Library, for the new technology center. When it opens to the public in early 2013, Best Buy Teen Tech Center will serve as an out-of-school learning environment where youth, ages 12-18, will explore ideas, develop skills and build self-confidence through the use of technology. It will be a flexible space for interest-driven learning with access to a broad range of technology and digital media tools. It will be staffed by librarians and other mentors, and through Best Buy’s partnership with the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network, it will connect youth with peers across the globe. More information to come in early 2013.
