Explore Technology with FreshBrain

Most schools don’t have the time, resources, or know-how to adequately teach students to use the latest technologies, and that leaves YOU at a disadvantage.

FreshBrain.org is a technology exploration platform for teens that seeks to fill that educational gap. FreshBrain helps you to discover technology through creative activities and projects. Have you ever wanted to write your own Facebook Application, create a video game, or make a YouTube video? FreshBrain has all the information and  tools you’ll need to get the job done!

 The site also offers social networking—you can connect with other teens through blogs, forums, and groups so that you can share ideas and show off your work.

Last, but not least, FreshBrain sponsors several scholarship programs that focus on what you create with technology, instead of on essays or tests. One of these is the FreshBrain Video Book Trailer Scholarship. To compete for a $1000 scholarship and a chance for your creation to be featured on the Random House website, you have to make an original book trailer for the verse novel Hugging the Rock by Susan Taylor Brown. The deadline is December 15, 2009. More details here:
