Per a September 4 Hennepin County e-newsletter:
The Hennepin County Board of Commissioners approved development of a Teen Tech Center at the Hennepin County Library - Minneapolis Central. Best Buy awarded a $100,000 grant to Hennepin County Library and Friends of the Hennepin County Library after accepting a proposal submitted for a Teen Tech Center. The Teen Tech Center will be one of only four initial sites in the nation.
Best Buy and Intel Computer Clubhouse Network are partnering to develop programming and curriculum that will help teens explore their passions in technology and inspire future education and career choices.
Teens (approximately 13 - 18 years) will develop projects based on their own interests such as: creating art, music and animations; designing their own science simulations and mobile applications; designing their own 3D worlds and games, and more.
The center will offer a powerful array of cutting-edge technology, such as computers, digital cameras, movie cameras, professional software, and program activities in a wide range of areas:
•Film making & Videography
•Audio production (including music mixing)
•Programming(including app development)
