Hewlett-Packard and the Magic Johnson Foundation are launching a community technology center aimed at bridging the digital divide.

The 11th Magic Johnson Foundation/HP Inventor Center opened on Thursday at Lansing's Black Child and Family Institute. The newly designed tech center is equipped with hardware and software valued at more than $200,000.

The center will offer courses and programs that will teach kids about the field of information technology. Johnson says it's a place where kids can dream and look to the future.

The Magic Johnson Foundation is a non-profit organization focusing on improving the health, educational, and social needs of inner cities. It has raised more than $20 million for charity.
