A complete digital makeover! Drones, virtual reality and 3D printers. It’s all part of a cool new tech center, just for high school teens after class.
The doors officially open here at the Best Buy Teen Tech Center at the Jerry Colangelo branch Wednesday! The center is addressing the nation’s opportunity gap by offering teens free, year-round, hands-on technology access and education in an after-school setting.
Most of the teens from the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix live at or below the federal poverty level and many of these kids don’t have access to technology at home, so this is going to make a big difference.
Now they can enjoy a state-of-the-art tech center with graphic programs, 3-D printers, virtual reality programs, green screen technology, drones, a recording studio and a whole lot more thanks to a big grant from Best Buy.
