Description

Food. Music. Prizes. The Teen Engagement Council is proud to present “Power Up the Future,” the Computer History Museum’s first-ever teen takeover. Join us at the Museum after-hours on June 22 from 5 to 9 p.m. for a fun-filled night packed with activities, prizes, food, and music.

“Power Up the Future” is a free event coordinated by the Museum’s new Teen Engagement Council. This event aims to empower teens through an exploration of the past and present of computing to provide a gateway into the future. Explore past technology, discuss present ventures, and imagine the future. See how technology is used throughout countless fields such as art, music, politics, and medicine. Engage in activities with your friends and explore the wonders of the Computer History Museum. “Power Up the Future” will show you how cool it really is to be a geek!

The Teen Engagement Council at CHM fosters collaboration among teens to create, coordinate, execute, and promote events by teens for teens. “Power Up the Future” is a pilot event aimed at paving the way for increased teen participation at the Computer History Museum.
