The Best Buy Teen Tech Center at the Clark County Library in Las Vegas is stocked with free to use high-tech gadgets. However, this is not the ordinary technology you see in a public library. Best Buy is offering up techs like DJ stations, computers stuffed with graphics and animation software, robotics equipment, a recording studio and even sewing machines to encourage teens to think about their future careers.

According to Best Buy’s website, the Teen Tech Center’s goal is “to give the students pointers on professionalism and how to stand out as a job candidate.”

“I think having a center in Indiana would help not only Fishers students but could lead many students in this state towards their interests in successful careers,” librarian Renee Isom said.

Teen Tech Centers provide teens with free, after-school spaces to discover technology, gain leadership skills and prepare for the future. There’s a lot of fun along the way, with 3-D printing, music production, and coding. But the primary focus is an introduction to new career or college pursuits to build better futures. They plan to open more than 60 centers and addition to building a few in Indiana.

Teen Tech is accepting proposals to host in several states.
