Teen Tech Bash

Fourth Fridays Teen Tech Bash is an experimental attempt at creating digital content creators and makers in a collaborative party setting after hours. We created a curriculm designed to promote ideation, collaboration and creativity. We set up stations that guide youth into self directed app, game, web and device creation.
