John Farquhar

TechTonic, Western Washington University's annual technology expo will be held on Wednesday, April 11, in the lobby of the Performing Arts Center. The Student Technology Center and the Associated Students are annual co-sponsors for the event, which features booths and presentations concerning implications of the advancement of technology.

The 2012 event is being held in conjunction with the Digital Media Forum, a presentation and conversation on visual literacies for the new millennium. Matthew Dunn is scheduled to deliver an engaging and media-enhanced presentation at 4 p.m. on the main stage of the PAC. Accompanying the event will be a video contest with prizes awarded at the presentation.

TechTonic 2012 will lead up to the 4 p.m. presentation by playing host to the technology exposition (including a reception) beginning at 1 p.m. in the lobby of the PAC. Apple will be on hand to discuss the new iBook authoring tool, and the student robotic club, the SAE vehicle club and the Bellingham Linux Users Group will be among those with booths set up at the event.

Other campus groups and technology vendors who want a booth at TechTonic are asked to complete the online registration form.
