There will lots of opportunities to show off our finery and creations!
Details on Beakernight can be had here:
For example here is some of things we can wander to.
"A nine-foot tall laser cat, gigantic musical tesla coils that shoot bolts of lightening 35 feet long, heavy metal robot bands, interactive LED installations, live music, three-storey tall 3D projections, art cars, fire!"
Beakernight is where Calgary lets loose with outdoor and indoor installations, dance parties, performances, and massive science experiments.
