The Association of Science – Technology Centers (ASTC) is holding their annual conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico from October 19-22 and Open Exhibits will be there. We are sharing a booth with Ideum (the lead organization for Open Exhibits). We can be found at booth #201/300 right in front of entrance two in the exhibit hall.
We will also be presenting at two sessions: Existing in Two Worlds Pecha Kucha where we will present lessons learned from the Human Computer Interaction in Informal Science Education (HCI+ISE) Conference held earlier this year. In the second session, Engaging Visitors with Disabilities in STEM Learning, we will explain our work in the Creating Museum Media for Everyone (CMME) project to build in accessibility tools within Open Exhibits.
If you are attending ASTC, please come out to the Ideum studios on Monday night (October 21st). Transportation from the Hyatt in downtown Albuquerque will be provided. The Ideum party is being held in conjunction with the Exhibitionist Journal (published by the National Association for Museum Exhibition, NAME).
The party is fully catered and there is even a mariachi band! Ideum will also be demoing new multitouch tables including the Platform 46 and Platform 32 & 46 multitouch coffee tables. If you stop by the Open Exhibits booth, just ask us for an invite!
