Seminole State College of Florida's Center for Information Technology will host the Fifth annual Hot New Technologies Expo on Saturday, Feb. 22, on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus.
This free family-friendly event will feature demonstrations and workshops on diverse technological topics such as cloud computing, gaming, Windows 8 and computer security issues. New this year, the expo will offer two breakout sessions – one each for elementary and middle school grades – that focus on the basics of coding game apps for Android systems.
The event will feature shows at Seminole State’s Emil Buehler Perpetual Trust Planetarium, a merchandise booth from GameStop, and GameTruck, a “mobile video game theater” that allows up to 16 people to play video games simultaneously on 50-inch plasma TVs. There also will be an information booth for participants interested in learning more about Seminole State’s IT programs.
Coffee, tea and snacks will be provided by Dunkin’ Donuts, and pizza will be served for lunch. All participants will receive a free T-shirt. Attendees also will have the opportunity to win tech prizes such as flash drives, ear phones and mini-speakers, as well as gift cards. One grand prize winner will receive a $500 scholarship to Seminole State, provided by the Foundation for Seminole State College of Florida.
This event begins at 9 a.m. in the breezeway in front of the Wayne M. Densch Partnership Center. Early registration is recommended, but it is not required to attend.
