Free Seminars in 2015:
Fusion: Art.Science.Technology is an innovative speaker series sponsored by the Cupertino Library Foundation along with the Performing Arts & Culture series, the Film series, and the Tech Toolbar to promote life-long learning and self-improvement in the Cupertino community.
The Art & Science of Making Wearable Technology Designs
Fusion Events 2015
Fusion Art.Science.Technology is a collaboration between the Cupertino Library Foundation and Cupertino Library developed as a community awareness and educational series focused on the intersections of art, science and technology in Silicon Valley.
Modern software tools combined with inexpensive 3D printers have made it possible for each and every person to express their artistic and creative ambitions in a cost-effective way.
The 2015 Fusion Art.Science.Technology series will develop this theme with speakers who have applied these techniques to design and produce elegant wearable designs so the community can learn from them, get their words-of-wisdom and apply in their own creativity.
The Fusion-2015 series will consist of two speaker events on March 21 and April 19th.
All events are FREE!
Attendance is free and registration for these Fusion: Art.Science.Technology events is optional. While registration does not guarantee seating, your RSVP allows the Cupertino Library Foundation to send reminders and notify registrants of changes in programming.
