That’s a wrap! Such a great 3 days with our #SparkLab National Network members from all over the country - talking invention, education, and hands on learning.
#SparkLab National Network members exploring the Invent a Laser Maze activity. Each of our 7 current Spark!Labs will go home with a copy of the activity so they can engage their visitors in lasers and the invention process!
Day 1 of the #SparkLab National Network conference - we’re talking about prototyping new activities and getting feedback from staff, volunteers, and visitors
Projection mapping on the front of the @amhistorymuseum building was pretty wild! We hope everyone enjoyed the #ACCelerateFestival weekend as much as we did!💥 #projectionmapping #innovation #creativity #visitdc #acreativedc
The Design Robotics exhibit demonstrates #interdisciplinary research in the application of digital design and robotic fabrication processes to realize geometrically complex artifacts with applications in architecture and engineering. The exhibit features displays of completed work as well as a demonstration of a large-scale robotic arm 3D printing system. 💪🏽🤖 #ACCelerateFestival
The Tree of 40 Fruit is an ongoing series of hybridized fruit trees. Each unique tree grows over 40 different types of stone fruit, including peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines, cherries, and almonds! 🌱🍒🍑🍐😍 #ACCelerateFestival
This is a wheelchair powered entirely by compressed air - one of its many #innovative features is that it allows the user to enter swimming pools🏊🏽! #ACCelerateFestival #visitdc #accesibility
BUGS wearing BACKPACKS?! Nothing to fear - a novel sensor network of insect biobots can enable operation in uncertain and dynamic conditions, such as search and rescue missions after natural disasters 🐛🎒🤖🚑🚨#ACCelerateFestival
We ❤️ #hiphop and we ❤️ the infinite number of forms innovation takes in our 🌎 #ACCelerateFestival
