Teen Tech Centers give students hands-on access to a range of technology.
High school senior Jennifer Castro already loved the New Orleans Public Library, but she loves it even more now that there’s a Best Buy Teen Tech Center on the second floor. The center provides teens with free access to a wide range of technology, including computers, digital cameras, virtual reality systems and coding software. There’s even a 3-D printer and a music studio.
“I will definitely be using the space to further develop a graphic design portfolio, which is what I want to do once I’m off to college soon,” Jennifer said at the center’s grand opening in June. “I would also like to learn how to code during my free time.”
