Teen Tech Week: Virtual Reality
March 27 @ 16:00 - 18:30Free
Our last workshop of the month! This meeting you will learn more about virtual reality! In a few years virtual reality may become as commonmplace as cell phones are today. Come and play with our virtual reality glasses and learn more about this astonishing technological breakthrough.
Afterward we invite all participants in Teen Tech Month workshops to gather and celebrate their accomplishments throughout the month. Don’t forget to bring your Makerspace Passports! We’ll be giving out prizes based on how many workshops you attended throughout the month and for special distinctions in each class.

TEEN TECH MONTH 2017
In 2017, March 5-11 is celebrated by the world community as Teen Tech Week, but we at the American Center are going to celebrate it all month long! Welcome to Teen Tech Month!
We invite teenagers from 13 to 18 years old to join the Teen Tech Month in our Makerspace with our fabulous volunteers and staff. Learn, create, innovate and “Be The Source of Change.” Throughout Teen Tech Month, we will offer 8 fun workshops to test your creativity and innovation. At the beginning of March, you will receive special Teen Tech Passports (given to true makers and tinkerers!), which you will fill in with the achievements you gain at each workshop. Special prizes will be granted to those who achieve as many “stamps” in their passport as possible and those who win special categories within classes. We encourage you to attend them all!
