What are exhibits?
Exhibits are booth-style displays of novel local technology, entertainment and design implementations. Exhibitors can include sponsoring corporations, students or local technologists or artisans. The purpose of exhibits is to give the audience a chance to see and experience things that they would not normally have exposure to either in daily life or even in college classes. The photo shows an engineering exhibit, or "lab," displayed March 15, 2014 at TEDxOaklandUniversity. Image source: veooz.

The following exhibits have been confirmed so far.
Out of the box, the MaKey MaKey creates highly interactive, 3-D models of circuits that help kids map the flow of electricity and test materials’ conductivity in really concrete ways. It’s a very user-friendly and intuitive inquiry tool for budding materials scientists. More than that, it’s an invitation to extend learning across content areas and to help kids get interested in the kinds of industrial design that make computer interfaces accessible, attractive, and effective for their users.
