The Best Buy Teen Tech Center is about creativity, we encourage the adults of tomorrow not to consume media but to create media.  To learn more about the National Teen Tech Center Program click here.  Best Buy Teen Tech Centers are a place where youth can access tech education and build the confidence they will need to have a successful future.

                  

BBTTC_Logo_2015Why would you want to go home and just watch TV when you can spend at least an hour making what you see on television? Here we learn to use technology through creative projects, like:

  • Photoshop
  • Graphic Design
  • Coding
  • Music Production

We have our very own music studio where members have the opportunity to take guitar, bass, drum, and vocal lessons. In addition, teens also have the opportunity to learn music production in our state of the art sound proof booth studio.

You don’t have to be great at anything we have to offer but it is a great experience to learn. In the Teen Tech Center we do not discourage one another or put each other down when we fail. We encourage one another to continue what we started so we can improve and succeed.
