Cohoes Opens Youth Technology and Music Space



COHOES, N.Y. – Cohoes just opened a new music studio and “connect lab” at the Connect Center for Youth. The city describes them as new spaces for young people to access technology for school work and creative projects.


During the COVID pandemic, a “technology gap” has widened between students of different economic backgrounds, and many middle and high schoolers are trying to learn remotely without inadequate access. The center aims to help bridge the gap in the local community.


The Cohoes Connect Center is opening this academic support space for students without sufficient computer and WiFi access. The music studio is described as a dynamic space with a sound booth for recording music and podcasts.


The opening of the connect lab and music studio completes the first phase of the city’s Connect STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) Lab. The next phases will include a technology workshop, media room, commercial kitchen classroom, and recreation space.
