A family-friendly, STEM-inspired, technology-infused dining experience is coming to Tacoma in late August. Described by the event’s website as, “a tech-fueled wonderland for the mouth and the mind,” Sue’s Tech Kitchen was envisioned by author and entrepreneur Randi Zuckerberg and created by a NASA scientist.
The event aims to inspire kids to embrace science, technology, engineering, and math skills through inventive food experiences like 3D-printed s’mores, liquid nitrogen desserts, and edible balloons.
“We are so excited to continue our Sue’s Tech Kitchen national tour in these soon-to-be major tech markets,” Zuckerberg said in a statement. “Making sure kids and families have access to the tools they need to explore STEM education has always been a driving force for us, and as we continue our stops, we’re developing more interactive stations that are exciting our guests and teaching them critical skills at the same time.”
The Tacoma tour dates, August 23-26, are presented in partnership with the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber and the Broadway Center. For more information, visit broadwaycenter.org.
