Virginia Tech opened up the doors of its Moss Arts Center to a younger audience Wednesday, welcoming little kids dressed as spiderman, Elsa and Ariel to the high-tech gallery turned Land of Oz for this year’s Tech-or-Treat.

The family-friendly event featured Wizard of Oz-themed technologies, and even some new inventions specifically manufactured for children to enjoy. From 3D printed skeleton hands that moved ever so eerily to robots that played soccer, kids of all ages were captivated by the event presented by the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology and the Center for the Arts at Virginia Tech.

An affair designed “to give children the opportunity to experience the creativity that flourishes at the intersection of science, engineering, art, and design,” Tech-or-Treat showcased work by students and faculty that use motors, robots, computers, lights, cameras, music and fabrics in unexpected ways. Through their projects, students and faculty prove that even tunes can serve multiple purposes.

The creativity evident in the displays inside Moss Arts Center are just another example of how brilliant Virginia Tech’s students are, especially those willing to explore out-of-the-box ideas. Whether it was the “ICAT signal” in the sky or the OzVendor that made one-of-a-kind 3D printed keys used to open one of the Wizard’s treasure chests that concealed gifts from the Yellow Brick Road, faculty and students participating in Tech-or-Treat outdid themselves, making for one unforgettable Halloween for kids and their parents alike.
