Teen Tech Week committee has come up with a list of 25 things teens can do for Teen Tech Week. If you run into any teens that seem bored or want something to do, then hand them a list of 25 tech activities they may want to try. There should be no_bored_teens in the library during Teen Tech Week. And with these self-directed activities, all you have to do is spread the word by giving out the ideas.
Feel free to print out and distribute this list to teens and also consider sending it as an update on Facebook, MySpace, or Bebo.
