Every January Las Vegas hosts the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), a large exposition of new technologies. In a same but smaller vein, Cal Lutheran is launching Electronics Expo, a technology show and tell providing hands-on experiences with the latest products from vendors such as Apple, Microsoft, Google and more. In addition to new products, the Electronics Expo will also include technologies currently used in our classrooms and showcase student projects. The Electronics Expo will be held on Thursday, January 14 from 1-4 PM in the Active Learning Classroom at the Pearson Library.
Please join us and walk away with truly useful giveaways and enter a raffle drawing for prizes. The event is open to all Cal Lutheran faculty and staff. Those of you who cannot make it to the Thousand Oaks campus or work at remote campuses can still participate in the raffle drawing by submitting your contact information online here.
Following is a sampling of items and vendors represented in the Expo:
- Apple iPad Pro and Apple Pencil (Apple representatives will be on hand)
- Apple Watch
- Mac Pro
- Oculus Rift
- MakerBot 3D Printer
- The weird but very interesting HP Sprout
- Microsoft Surface tablet
- Microsoft Band
- A demonstration of the Sphero BB-8 (think Star Wars’ rolling droid, not BlackBoard)
- And more…
It is our goal to make the Electronics Expo a growing tradition at Cal Lutheran, providing faculty and staff an opportunity to experience new and evolving technologies, and to explore possible applications in the classroom as well as in the office.
