PRLog (Press Release) - Aug. 6, 2012 - Detroit – The Detroit Public Library’s HYPE Teen Center concludes its summer camps with an exciting new display featuring the work of Detroit teens in the MakerSpace Camp, Teen Summer Read and the FuturePreneurs Business Development Camp.  The finale celebration takes place on Saturday, August 11th in the Detroit Public Library’s HYPE Teen Center @ Main Library.

The library’s MakerSpace Camp was sponsored by Cogizant’s Making the Future program, a program that seeks to inspire young learners to pursue science, technology, engineering and math disciplines by creating fun, hands-on learning opportunities.  The eight-week camp featured workshops on bicycle tech skills, robotics, graphic design, electronics, music, foreign languages and much more

“Our goal was to do whatever it takes to inspire our teens on many levels through these ‘maker’ workshops,” said Linda Curvey-Brown, HYPE Center Teen Specialist.  “We were also excited to offer teens the FuturePreneurs Business Development Camp to learn how to manage a business.”

Along with the Detroit Public Library’s annual Summer Reading program for teens, this year’s summer programming also included the FuturePreneurs Summer Business Development Camp as well to encourage entrepreneurial aspirations from the teens.  

FuturePreneurs is a two-week summer program that exposes teens to the keys to becoming prominent business leaders in the community.
