Join guest speakers from Ideum, a local interactive design firm, to learn about designing and planning complex digital installations, including video walls, projection mapping, theater projection, and more.

In this Teen Science Café, Ideum staff will share their work, discuss the paths they took to exhibit design and development, and answer questions about careers that integrate science, art, and technology.
