Tech Petting Zoo for CLA Attendees- April 23, 2018

Greetings CLA exhibitors!

CLA is hosting a Happy Hour for attendees on Monday, April 23, from 4:45-6 PM, in the Exhibit Hall. During Happy Hour, we’re holding a Tech Petting Zoo, and will have various STEM-related items for demonstration, such as robots and 3D printers. We’ve designed this event to encourage attendees to move around the Exhibit Hall during the event.


What is a Tech Petting Zoo? 

STEM tech that provides hands-on experiences are very much in demand at libraries, but many library staff are unfamiliar with all of the options out there. This is an opportunity for library staff to learn about different items available, to get hands-on experience and to learn from their colleagues about how to integrate these technologies into their library services.


It’s also an opportunity for you. We’re inviting you to become a tech sponsor for the evening.

For your $150 sponsorship we’ll provide you with a STEM-related tech piece and a volunteer to demonstrate it, right at your table! 

In addition, your company will be featured as a stop on the Technology Zoo Map that we will be distributing to all registrants on Monday.


As the sponsor of one of the featured technologies, this is a great opportunity to showcase your tech related products alongside the featured tech item- to a highly interested group.


You can choose the piece of tech that you sponsor (first come, first served).


Choose from:

– Laser Cutter


– Ozobot

– Dash and Dot

– Robot

– Sphero

– 3D Doodler
