The Association of Science – Technology Centers (ASTC) is holding their annual conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico from October 19-22. With the conference here in our state, we have a lot planned. First off, we are sharing a booth with the Open Exhibits project. We have two booths in fact (#201/300) and we will be hard to miss as we are right in front of entrance two at the exhibit hall.
In addition to the booths, we will be presenting at two sessions: Existing in Two Worlds Pecha Kucha and Engaging Visitors with Disabilities in STEM Learning. In the first session, we will present lessons learned from the Human Computer Interaction in Informal Science Education (HCI+ISE) Conference held earlier this year. In the second, we will explain our work in the Creating Museum Media for Everyone (CMME) project to build in accessibility tools within Open Exhibits.
Finally, we are having a party and you’re invited (if you are attending ASTC, of course). We will be hosting this party Monday October 21st at the Ideum studios in conjunction with the Exhibitionist Journal (published by the National Association for Museum Exhibition, NAME). Stop by our booth at ASTC and we’ll give you a party pass!
Mariachi Nuevo Sonido will be playing at the Ideum studio party which will include New Mexico food and beverages. We will also be showing off our new multitouch tables including our new Platform 46 and Platform 32 and 46 multitouch coffee tables.
