Six neighborhood locations in the Boston Public Library system, including the recently renovated Teen Central at the Central Library, have events planned with the theme “Create it at your library.” Through these programs, learning is extended beyond the classroom and teens have a space in which they can explore, create, and share content, and learn to be competent and ethical users of digital media.
“Teen Tech Week is a great opportunity for our young residents across the city to participate in free programs that will advance their skills in using modern technology,” said Mayor Walsh. “I encourage all of our teenage learners to participate in these programs that will help them expand their knowledge of digital media and technology, and gain a competitive advantage that will help them achieve their future goals.”
“Boston Public Library joins libraries across the nation in supporting the digital literacy needs of teens everywhere,” said Boston Public Library Interim President David Leonard. “Boston teens across the city have a variety of programs to choose from and can further their education and skill development in a safe learning environment.”
”Teen Tech Week is a prime opportunity for teens across the city to have a hands-on experience with technology and hone their skills; teens participating in technology programs at Boston Public Library locations will help support their college and 21st century career needs,” said Farouqua Abuzeit, Manager of Youth Services.
Programs offered March 6-12 include music making through code, building robot hardware, blogging, and coding with Minecraft in conjunction with the Rhode Island Computer Museum. The six Boston Public Library locations participating in Teen Tech Week are: Dudley, East Boston, Grove Hall, Hyde Park, Mattapan, and Teen Central, Central Library in Copley Square.
