MEMPHIS, TN – State-of-the-art teen learning lab CLOUD901 is turning one, and Memphis Public Libraries are celebrating in a major way. On Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016, noon – 2 p.m., Memphis youth will show the city what they have learned or created during the CLOUD901 One-year Anniversary Teen Showcase held at the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library (3030 Poplar Avenue). Free and open to the public, a list of performances are planned to highlight tomorrow’s singers, songwriters, visual artists, entertainers, computer experts and more. A year in the making, this exciting day will enable citizens of all ages to witness the amazing talents and 21st century skills that Memphis youth have to offer. “Every day that the doors of CLOUD901 open, we aim to make a difference in the lives of teens by targeting their potential, uncovering hidden talents, and developing marketable skills using cutting-edge technology. Teens inside the CLOUD have grown exponentially over the past year due to increased access to essential tools, a relaxed learning space, and a remarkable staff that nurtures their growth in a safe, supportive, and stress-free environment,” said CLOUD901 Manager Jessica Chaney. “Customers are cordially invited to see tomorrow’s success stories today, as we present exhibits from each space inside the lab – music production, video production, gaming and coding, art, and the Makerspace.” From wall to wall, CLOUD901 is 8,300 square feet of learning space filled with 3-D printers, laptops, iPads, audio and video equipment, MacBook Pros and Airs, X-Boxes and PlayStations, keyboards and more – all for free and all available for teens to check out and explore.
