Final Pop-up Picnic! – September 16, 2015
Join us for the final pop-up picnic of the season! Coinciding with first day of Beakerhead, you can get a taste of all the science-fun that Beakerhead has to offer with this FREE event on Stephen Avenue. Pair up your lunch with a heaping dose of ingenuity on the side! In this Beakerhead edition of Pop-Up Picnic, four amazing presenters will have just 6.28 minutes each (that’s 2 x pi) to tell your their tales of invention and discovery. Enjoy a live performance by Kevin Stebner, a multidisciplinary artist and musician based out of Calgary, performing chiptune music under the moniker, GreyScreen, using “outdated” video game technology (Gameboys) to make audio compositions that are then performed live.
