GeekiWood is the only event of its kind where producers, educators, technicians & scientists come together to blend the magic of film and television with real science. Using new and divergent teaching options, they inspire attendees to explore how technology facilitates the creative process.

 

 

Or, as we like to say: STEM (science, technology, engineering, & math) meets the Arts to make STEAM.
