02 Mar: Creating a space for young women to explore STEM

When Olivia Farley became coordinator of the Best Buy Teen Tech Center at Keystone Community Services this fall, she noticed something was missing: girls.

The center, located in St. Paul, Minnesota, is one of about 35 Teen Tech Center locations across the country. It opened in 2017 as a place where teens can explore their interests in all things tech, from coding and graphic design to filmmaking and everything in between.

Giving youth — especially girls — access to tech education opportunities is important to Best Buy.
