09 Mar: Teen Tech Week: Best Buy, Geek Squad Teach Web Skills

More than 500 teens across the United States are learning the finer points of building websites with the help of Best Buy and Geek Squad volunteers during Teen Tech Week.

The classes are happening at 27 libraries in 22 states through Saturday, March 12. This year’s theme for Teen Tech Week is “Create it at your library.”

Geek Squad Academy’s “Web-Know How” is the foundation for the classes. Topics covered include:

  • Making websites by manipulating code through hands-on and guided online activities.

13 Mar: ‘Super Cool’ Know-How Happening Now in Teen Tech Week Tour

3D printing. Digital recording. Robotics.

How else could a lineup like that be characterized other than “super cool”?

“There’s tons of fun things to do. It’s super cool,” said teenager Maia Seidel while at the Minneapolis Central Library on Tuesday night. “I like the recording studio because I love to sing.”

That’s exactly the reaction that Best Buy and Geek Squad are hoping for as they participate in the March 9-15  Teen Tech Week, a movement for digital literacy and technology spearheaded by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA).
