CREATECH

Createch is creative tinkering space for teens. Createch strives to provide teens in and around Saint Paul with access to the current and emerging technology needed to pursue their interests and spark new passions along with mentors to support their individual growth.

Createch sites are now in five libraries!  The program is a partnership among Saint Paul Public Library, Saint Paul Parks and Recreation, the Science Museum of Minnesota, and SPNN.  The teens, mentors, neighborhood, and community partners all add their flavor to each space.
