Teen Tech Week, What a Blast!

Teen Tech Week 2012 at the Main library was a huge success. During the week, Teens and Tweens had the opportunity to learn and celebrate different things about technology. We were pretty amazed at the turn out for all the programs we had to offer, since this was our first Teen Tech Week program at Main.

The teens showed great enthusiasm for the Microsoft Publisher and the gaming programs which proved to be a great success. Next year we will be offering even more programs for Teen Tech Week.

By using Microsoft Publisher, teens and tweens used their creative minds to produce attractive posters and bookmarks about reading.

We used an online gaming site,, for our popular two part program. Game Star Mechanic allows children to develop games. But before they have the opportunity to create a game, they must complete a quest which helps the children understand different components of the game designing process. Once the quest was completed, they worked on their game.

As part of Teen Tech Week, we had a Wrap-Up party for all of those who attended. At the party, the teens had the opportunity to show off their games and Publisher creations.
