The Denver Public Library’s ideaLAB is a state-of-the-art digital media creation center where metro-area teens learn core STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) concepts through creative expression. By engaging teens in the production of digital media, the ideaLAB assists youth in developing 21st century skills that will serve them both in school and in their future careers.
DPL’s ideaLAB opened on May 6, 2013, and has already seen more than 120 unique visitors who have completed more than 225 projects. Because of this success, Denver Public Library is planning an expansion both in space and services. That’s where you come in!
