At the July Providence Geeks, Rhode Island Museum of Science & Art (RIMOSA) Founder and Executive Director Bonnie Epstein will join us to talk about the museum. Many of you have seen RIMOSA’s pop-up exhibits at WaterFire, RI Mini Maker Faire, Foo Fest, Providence Children’s Film Festival and other events. On June 10, RIMOSA officially opened the doors of their new west end site at 763 Westminster Street. Come and learn about RIMOSA’s past, present, and future, and experience a few of the hands-on experiences they are known for. This will be a kid-friendly evening.
The event itself is FREE! Beverages and food are for sale at AS220’s excellent bar and restaurant.
Doors open at 5:30pm. Socializing, eating and drinking up until the 15 min presentation/q&a around 6:30. Afterwards, back to socializing, eating, drinking.
It’s totally casual. Wear whatever, bring whomever, arrive and take off whenever! And don’t worry about eating or not – come famished or full – eating is optional, and frankly, the least of the festivities (that’s not to say the food isn’t good – it’s actually great).
Topics of conversation will vary as they will at any gathering of geeks, but many of us will be talking about start-ups, new devices, innovative business models, 3d printing, interaction design, social computing, digital art, web services, and more! There is Wi-Fi so bring your connected device of choice.
