Belated CWW: TouchTomorrow at WPI on Saturday

I’d forgotten to put this on my calendar, so I was very glad when the T&G had a story about TouchTomorrow.

From the website:

TouchTomorrow will be held Saturday, June 16, from 10AM to 5PM throughout the WPI campus. The activities and exhibits are designed to be enjoyed by all ages, with an emphasis on  inspiring children to see how thrilling and fun science and technology can be. Admission is free; food and drink will be available.

 A sampling of TouchTomorrow’s outdoor and indoor exhibits and activities:
