Worcester Polytechnic Institute and WGBH will present Touch Tomorrow — a festival of science, technology, and robots — on Saturday, June 10, 10AM-4PM at WPI (directions). It’s family-friendly, fun, free, and open to all ages — with a particular focus on what’s interesting for middle- and high-school students. WPI faculty and students will open their labs and share their work and engage the public in hands-on activities and demonstrations. Registration beforehand is appreciated. Download the Touch Tomorrow app for iPhone or Android as your guide to the festival.
