Creative Technologies Exhibition Brings Engineering and Art Together From Across Campus and the Boise Community
Albertsons Library is proud to host the Creative Technologies Exhibition (CTX). This event is for people of all ages interested in exploring and learning more about creative arts and technologies. Families and children are welcome to attend the event, taking place Saturday, April 21, from noon – 4 p.m. in the second floor of Albertsons Library in the makerspace.
As the Treasure Valley continues to become a hub for technology startups and creative individuals alike, Boise State’s own Creative Technologies Association (CTA) seeks to celebrate the union of traditional STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) fields with the arts during the inaugural Creative Technologies Exhibition (CTX). This “STEAM” centered event will include dozens of interactive displays, exhibits, and demonstrations for all ages, and will incorporate the projects of student organizations from a variety of disciplines, as well as several individuals and community groups.
“There are already several other wonderful STEM events in Boise,” said CTA president Scott Schmader, “but we want to help show that a creative approach to technical education can take learning to a whole new level of fun and inspire completely unique forms of entertainment and innovation.” Featured displays will include an 8-foot-tall 3D printer, a musical instrument made entirely out of PVC pipe, a high-fiving robot, and a virtual reality simulation of the surface of Mars.
The event will run from 12-4 pm on the 21st in the College of Innovation and Design space on the second floor of the Albertsons Library. It is free and open to the public. Visitors are encouraged to bring their utmost curiosity, as well as all of their friends and family.
