About the Best Buy Teen Tech Center

The Best Buy Teen Tech Center is an interest-based learning environment for teens to experiment and master various new technologies with help from their peers and adult mentors. They can then share their work with other teens across the globe through The Clubhouse Network.

The center is equipped with technology and multimedia tools that can be used for music and video production, interactive programming, graphic design, and more.

The Best Buy Teen Tech Center is designed to be a safe, comfortable, and engaging space for teens. Membership is limited to youth ages 13 – 18. Members must complete a membership application and get signed permission from a parent or legal guardian in order to participate.
