Bridging the Digital Divide: Technology, Teens, and Informal Learning Spaces

Join us in the Ring Auditorium at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden to hear from three unique programs that have proven success in building a teen audience. Teens and staff will represent each program on the panel, which will be moderated by Stephanie Norby, director of the Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access. Claudine Brown, assistant secretary for education and access, will deliver the keynote speech. Register in advance.
