Innovations and Ideas Expo
June 16, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - June 17, 2019 @ 6:00 pm
As part of the InterPlanetary Festival, the Innovations & Ideas Expo features interactive and experiential booths with participants from academia, to AR/VR, to biotechnology. June 15th & 16th from 12-6PM, in the Expo Tent!
InterPlanetary Podcast Stage – Some of the best science-oriented Podcasts will be recording episodes live from the Expo Podcast Stage! Submit questions to the speakers, tell us why you’re here, what you love, what you hate, what you think about our InterPlanetary Future.
BEMER Vascular Therapy – Recharge your body! Come experience an 8-minute BEMER energy session and enhance your general blood flow. The BEMER (Bio-Electro-Magnetic-Energy-Regulation) wellness device uses a pulsed electromagnetic field to deliver a patented therapeutic signal which assists the heart in delivering blood to the smallest vessels in that body.
Cyber Hero League – CYBERHERO LEAGUE® is a new edtech brand that turns kids’ playtime into real world heroic action. Kids become real world heroes using the tools of digital technology to develop empathy and compassion for others while becoming globally-aware activists. Cyberhero League gives kids the opportunity to learn about and achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
Heart Mind Connection – The interactive art piece “Heart Drum” will be in the center. Visitors and participants will wear an ear clip that measures their heart rate, the signal of which controls a bass and snare drum to be played in response to the rhythm. Bongo drums are provided so participants can play a duet with their own heart. There will also be two mixed media sculptures from my brain series on pedestals, and a glass wall relief illustrating various brain waves.
InterGalactic Cultural Relations Institute – Imagine being an intergalactic diplomat or cultural attaché – what would you share with aliens? What would you want them to share with you? What is cultural diplomacy? What if you could be part of the first Space Nation formed by human beings – Asgardia? Do you have an alien or UFO experience to share with others who are genuinely interested in friendly and respectful encounters? Stop by the InterGalactic Cultural Relations Institute booth to imagine the role of art and culture in future interplanetary and intergalactic cultural relations, meet the InterGalactic Ambassadors and Dr. Howard, and get a free sticker!
Laboratory for Playful Computation – Join the Laboratory for Playful Computation from the University of Colorado Boulder in crafting postcards from places in space, real or imagined, using a combination of low tech craft materials and high tech electronics. Take your postcard home or add it to the postcard gallery on display. No experience with electronics or art making is necessary. The Laboratory for Playful Computation is an interdisciplinary research group that believes learning should be a creative process, informed by approaches from many disciplines, driven by curiosity, and full of joy. We create and study new learning experiences and technologies that realize these values.
Los Alamos National Labs/Bradbury Museum of Science – Hands on science demonstrations. (Los Alamos)
MAKE Santa Fe – MAKE Santa Fe will have two installations. First, right outside the entrance to the Expo Tent, a giant orrery made out of up-cycled parts by volunteers from the makerspace. Real functionality for nerds of all ages to turn the crank and see the planets move! Second, inside in the MAKE Booth, a Ruben’s Tube made from recycled materials to demonstrate a standing wave with fire. Make will also have a 3d printer in use and laser cut giveaways.
Oculus VR Booth – Come test out the Oculus VR experience!
Santa Fe Children’s Museum – SATURDAY ONLY – The Stargazer Portable Planetarium – Learners of all ages enter the dome of the planetarium, and through the high definition magic of Stargazer, travel to distant galaxies.
