Now Accepting Volunteers and Mentors for Arkansas' First Best Buy Teen Tech Center!
Best Buy Teen Tech Centers are a place where teens can develop critical skills through hands-on activities that explore their interests in programming, filmmaking, music production, and design.
The Innovation Hub’s Best Buy Teen Tech Center is expected to open in November 2023, and we are excited to start looking for mentors and volunteers.
Apptegy awards the Innovation Hub $10,000 to support its youth education efforts.
Apptegy has granted the Innovation Hub $10,000 to support its efforts to take educational programming into Arkansas’ communities with its Mobile Makerspace program.
Apptegy’s newest gift will allow the hub’s STEAM educators to take their mobile unit to schools outside of Pulaski County to support its mission of providing access to STEAM education across the State of Arkansas at no cost to the students.
We realized that one of the barriers to experiencing STEAM education at the Innovation Hub is cost. When you donate to the Hub, you are not only giving children a chance to discover and learn new skills through hands-on education, but you are also inspiring them to become the future innovative makers of our world!
