Around the country, teens are getting hands-on with the technology that helps fuel their passion for creativity at Best Buy Teen Tech Centers. These tech centers are filled with premium tech tools, such as the Wacom Cintiq Pro 24 and Wacom Intuos, and present an opportunity for teens to experiment and produce work that often rivals work by professionals.
The most recent center opened in Portland, Ore. at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI). It just so happens that we can practically see OMSI from Wacom’s Americas HQ so the Wacom crew headed over to participate in the opening ceremony.
The technology at the Teen Tech Center at OMSI ranges from a textile section, complete with knitting needles and yarn, to techier tools such as laptops, Intuos tablets and the Cintiq Pro 24. The Wacom crew was sorely tempted to try our karaoke skills at the recording booth, but, if we’re just being honest, none of us is ready to belt out ballads in front of our colleagues.
Our own Jose Torres was honored to spend a few minutes greeting the crowd and sharing Wacom’s brand vision: for a creative world. Wacom offers all employees volunteer hours to spend helping the community and Jose committed his time to volunteering at the Teen Tech Center.
Wacom products can be found in all of the Best Buy Teen Tech Centers. To learn more or find a center near you, visit their website.
