STEMpunk: Techtacular 2015

Posted Feb 27, 2015 01:45 PM
Join us Wednesday April 29th in the panoramic conference center at Pacific Tower. Techtacular is a fun no-ask networking event attending by leaders from the technology and nonprofit sectors. The theme of this year’s Techtacular is STEMpunk, a splendid mixture of the Steampunk genre with STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Math as we profile First Robotics, which received a technology makeover thanks to Microsoft and 501 Commons.

Join us for a fun evening of networking at the unique intersection where technology, nonprofits and some amazing robots meet.

The theme of this year’s Techtacular is STEMpunk – mixing the Victorian nostalgia of the Steampunk genre with robots from Washington FIRST Robotics, a 501 Commons client. WA FIRST Robotics is helping kids get a dose of STEM - science, technology, engineering, and math – education in order to increase their enthusiasm for math and science and interest in STEM careers.

Just as Steampunk looks back to the past to comment on the present and future, the night will feature a look back at First Robotics before a technology makeover the nonprofit has been undergoing with the support of 501 Commons and Microsoft.

This creative evening brings together some of the most talented people in technology and nonprofit leadership in the Northwest. With outstanding food, complimentary drinks, and entertainment, Techtacular is a light, fun way to raise funds for 501 Commons and our nonprofit-focused tech services across Washington State. But you can leave your checkbook at home … we won’t hit you up for a donation!
