The Emerging Tech Symposium is a powerful and relevant program dedicated to creativity and invention by means of makerspaces and fablabs.  The day will feature speakers discussing their projects, their partnerships, their goals and their hoped for outcomes.  If you are interested in makerspaces and fablabs, are charged with creating and/or maintaining a makerspace or fablab, or are trying to figure out the role of a makerspace or fablab in your environment – this is the Symposium for you! 

Marcus Brathwaite from Case Western Reserve University’s $35M, open to the public, Think[box], will kick off the day.  He will be followed by Jane Alexander, CIO at the Cleveland Museum of Art, discussing Studio Play, an interactive space for children birth to age 8.  Dr. Petra Gruber, architect and Associate Professor in the Meyers School of Art and in the Department of Biology at the University of Akron, will talk about her charge to create a fablab for biomimicry research in conjunction with the City of Akron.  After lunch, Wayne Bartholomew from the Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County will provide insight into their popular and evolving makerspace and we will conclude the day with Cherie Bronkar from Kent State University, Tuscarawas campus, talking about the library’s makerspace.
