On May 7, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., visitors will have the opportunity to take part in one of Rochester’s newest celebrations…the “Imagine RIT Innovation & Creativity Festival.” This event was the brainchild of University President, William W. Destler, designed to showcase the innovative and creative spirit that epitomizes Rochester Institute of Technology. Those are strong words for any festival to live up to, but Imagine RIT more than rises to the occasion.
Our family attended last year not really knowing what to expect, but taking friends’ advice that we’d enjoy it. What we discovered was an event that weaves science, engineering, art, interactivity and fun into one fantastic event that photos (or words) just don’t do justice. The event sprawls across
much of the campus with activities that engage adults as well as children in everything from remote control car races, hands-on murals, life size sculptures, and interactive photography to inflatables for the kiddies and music and dance performances.
Imagine RIT is a free event, open to the public, and it takes place on the campus of Rochester Institute of Technology located at One Lomb Memorial Drive in Rochester.
Take my advice and don’t miss this event…education’s never been so much fun!
