The Imaginarium

Imaginarium 2018

Facilitated by the STEAM Factory, this interactive learning space in the Cartoon Room, 3rd floor features demos of forward-thinking tools and projects and opportunities for ideation, networking and discussion. Attendees can explore, imagine and investigate new ideas in a space where education, technology and creativity converge. 

Explore new ideas and technologies

Sometimes the best way to learn a new concept is to dive right in! From virtual and augmented reality, to gameful learning, to mobile apps, the Imaginarium features a variety of innovative tools and topics. Visit with presenters at their tech displays or tables to ask questions, share ideas and try things out!

Generate knowledge with others

The Imaginarium was developed to foster creativity and discussion among all who visit. Attendees are encouraged to share ideas around conference themes and use this space as an additional opportunity to network with fellow conference goers.
