This traveling pop-up exhibit, introduced last year in Chattanooga, Tenn., encourages healthy rela- tionships with technology and inspires youngsters to embrace STEM skills (sci- ence, technology, engineer- ing and math). Among the experiences are 3-D-printed s'Mores; candy-con- trolled robots; liquid nitro- gen; an edible chemistry experiment; and treat-drop- ping drones. Sue's Tech Kitchen, as this brainchild of Randi Zuckerberg (sis- ter of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg) is called, will travel to nine up-and-coming U.S. tech hubs this year — among them Atlanta; Cedar Park, Texas; Glen Allen, Va.; Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.; Schaumburg, Ill.; and Tacoma, Wash. Five of the units will operate at ShopCore Properties' shopping centers. "When Randi explained her new tech concept to me, I couldn't wait to bring it to our centers," said ShopCore President and CEO Luke Petherbridge.
