We reported in Monday’s DMA Tech Watch about our DMA team on the road at the SXSW festival and conference in Austin, Texas.

Since then, our crew has been meeting tons of excited young people at the SXSWedu Playground. These kids and teens are eager to discover all the cool things that technology can do.

SXSWedu Playground visitors are having a great time at the DMA booth. Come by Thursday!

Our team (led by DMA Regional Director Paul Lopez and Assistant Curriculum Developer & Instructor Marcus Duvoisin) has been showing off virtual reality, 3D printing and more, and it’s been great…but our crew will only be showcasing it there for another day.

So come see us tomorrow – Thursday, March 10th from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. (Central) – at Booth #10 in Ballroom EFG of the Austin Convention Center – and get hands-on demos of exciting new tech.


And here’s a little something extra to get you to come see us:
