What's happening in the Teen Learning Lab?
The Teen Learning Lab will be closed for the holiday season on Thursday, December 13, Wednesday, December 26 and Thursday, December 27. We will be open at our usual time on Saturday, December 29.
Something is happening every day the Teen Learning Lab is open. We periodically host new teen orientations, guest mentors and workshops. A full schedule of lab hours and events is available online on our Calendar page. Several ongoing research, art and technology projects are happening throughout the year.
When you’re ready to dive into the Teen Learning Lab, start with one of our new teen orientations, where we’ll introduce you to the mentors, projects and resources available within the lab.
Before your first visit, complete this survey to let us know what you’d like to explore in the lab. If you have a specific project in mind, email firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
