A Look Back at TouchTomorrow 2019

June 20, 2019

From animals (real and robotic) and virtual reality to sports and Skittles, you never know what you’ll find at TouchTomorrow. Every year has something different from the previous year—that’s part of why we love it. For those who couldn’t make it to this year’s event (as well as those who did and want to reminisce), here’s a glimpse of how we spent the day.

A young girl reaches out to touch an armadillo held by a TouchTomorrow exhibitor.

We met lots of new friends, human and otherwise.

A TouchTomorrow attendee laughs while trying on an astronaut helmet.

We tried some new hobbies and interests on for size.

TouchTomorrow attendees participate in an activity under a tent on the Quad.

Our feet didn’t have to leave the ground for us to reach for the stars.

A TouchTomorrow volunteer assists an attendee with an experiment involving lemons and electricity.

When life gives you lemons … use ’em in science experiments, of course!

Paul Ventimiglia ’12 took a break from winning BattleBots competitions to spend the day with us (and share a trade secret or two).

Attendees don safety goggles as they work on an experiment in one of WPI's labs.

As for pulling off science experiments without a hitch, we get by with a little help from our friends (in the lab).

Attendees check out some of the robots on display in Alden Memorial.

Robots big and small made for not only a fun day of exploration, but a pretty rad Instagram post, too.

Attendees watch as a pillar of fire shoots up in the Fire Protection Engineering Lab.

We hope TouchTomorrow ignited a spark of curiosity in you!
