My idea to host a Tech Fair went off this past Saturday without a hitch! John manned the 3D printers (very popular with kids), Sally the Google Glass (everyone loved them), and I took care of technology support/education, the Digital Media Lab, and the Small Office Home Office (SoHo) Business Center equipment. I think we got around 200 or so interactions. The most popular items on my table was the drone and the turntable.
Where did the Tech Fair idea come from? Well, I saw photos from the Gala where my colleague Alex showed off the 3D printers to attendees. I wanted to do the same thing, but make it more inclusive and not just for people who could afford to purchase gala tickets.
Sally proposed that we do the Tech Fair again in the Spring, so we’ll be back in April!
