Imagine RIT

During this upcoming weekend, on May 4th RIT is holding their Imagine RIT Festival. Check out new technology, upcoming innovations, and fun things that we can do here at RIT!


Imagine RIT is designed to demonstrate what can be accomplished when, as RIT President Bill Destler likes to say, “the right and left brain collide.” Visitors have witnessed a robot that serves hot dogs, a concrete canoe that floats and dozens of musical and theatrical performances. Children have made freeze-dried ice cream, test driven Segways and jumped around in a bounce house.

Imagine RIT: Innovation and Creativity Festival is a campus-wide event that showcases the innovative and creative spirit of RIT students, faculty and staff. Visitors experience the breadth and depth of RIT through interactive presentations, hands-on demonstrations, exhibitions, and research projects set up throughout campus. Inflatables, games and multiple performance stages with live music and entertainment are also a hit with visitors of all ages. Held annually each spring, Imagine RIT is the kickoff to Rochester’s rich festival season.

Date & Time: Saturday, May 4, 2013 from 10am to 5pm, rain or shine.

Cost: Free and open to the public!

After you attend the festival leave a comment on your favorite station, activity, or event. If you’re feeling ambitious look around and see if there are any forms of technical communication or technical communicators at Imagine RIT.
