GeekTEC will be held at the facilities and grounds of the Cypress Lake High School Center for the Arts Campus in Fort Myers, Florida on Saturday, April 14, 2012, from 8 AM until 3 PM. Technology industry innovators and inventers will offer “wow” demonstrations of their latest technology while technology businesses in SW Florida will demonstrate their products and services. Forum sessions beginning every hour will focus on technology in business and education with a look to the future in learning and career possibilities. Forum and webcast interview topics include cyber-security, green energy engineering, digital age law, environment, information management, web development, medicine, and environment. Admission is $5. Middle school aged students are admitted free with a paying adult. Register on-line at www.geektec.org or at the door.
Technology programs from Southwest Florida – including the School District of Lee County - and colleges and universities from throughout the state are invited to be represented with technology program information. Inspirational demonstrations of historical technology from the Edison and Ford Home Winter Estates will remind us of the roots of technology and our debt to the innovators of the past. Professionals currently in the field will learn of further education possibilities and will network with technology employers.
A live webcast will bring geekTEC to the world as Media Arts students at Cypress Lake High School practice the broadcasting production skills of the media communications professional. Student producers are involving TV production and technology business professionals and educators as well as other media students from other Lee District Schools programs. GeekTEC station breaks at the beginning of each webcast hour will lead programming that includes one hour forums, technology demonstrations and interviews with inventers, innovators, businesses, organizations and students, and attendees. All video programming, along with additional information about each of the presenters will be available on the website.
