How do you keep a website running smoothly when 317,000 updates, and 147,000 photos are uploaded every 60 seconds? The answer: with 15 million square feet of data center space hosting millions of servers, along with some innovative technology – including the Facebook data center in Los Lunas. William Marks, Facebook’s Community Development Manager, will lead an interactive discussion and activities about the science and technology behind the scenes at Facebook.

BONUS: participants will be able to build and keep a solar car!

Before joining Facebook, William Marks served 22 years in the Navy. Marks was the senior spokesperson for DoD intelligence issues, leading media engagement for the Vice President of the United States and Ambassador Nikki Haley.
