Engaging Community

Science should be available to everyone. Research shouldn’t be hidden in labs and buried on computer hard drives. We regularly share our work with the community through interactive public events that showcase the collaborative work of scientists, engineers, artists, and designers, and inspire future generations of creative problem solvers. Here, learners of all ages and from a wide range of backgrounds have genuine conversations with researchers and learn about science. Interactive technology brings data to life and tells the stories of researchers and their work, while sculptures and other works of art show data and computational processes in unexpected, captivating, and often very accessible ways.
