The new Teen Tech Center at 1 John Street in a separate location opposite the Adams Street library is now open for teenagers ages 13 to 18. It is one of 5 Teen Tech Centers in Brooklyn. The space previously used as interim library and annex of the Brooklyn Children’s Museum is designed as an interactive learning environment where teens can experiment with technology, get homework help, socialize with peers, meet professionals in the field of tech, and acquire skills for college and careers. The center features musical instruments including a drum set, 3D printer, sewing machine, video games, arts material and more.
It is now open for teens to drop in from Tuesday to Friday from 2.30 to 5.30 pm. The team plans to offer a wide range of programming including T-shirt design workshops, video editing classes and more. Currently, Teen Thursdays with Video Games are happening from 3 to 4 pm twice a month. Check out their events calendar here.
Teens and parents need to fill out a consent form to participate in activities there. Email the center director for the parental consent form. The grand opening celebration for all ages will take place on Thursday, November 2nd from 4 to 5.30 pm.
