February 22, 2014ROSWELL, Ga. Roswell NEXT, a community-involved nonprofit focused on social, civic and economic topics in Roswell, is partnering with the Computer Museum of America (COMA) to open up the conversation about the future of technology in Roswell.
On Feb. 27, from 6 to 8 p.m., Roswell NEXT and COMA invite residents to tour the Apple Pop Up Exhibit and to participate in an open dialogue about the technology needs of North Fulton.
COMA is in the early stages of planning a North Fulton Technology Center that will be focused on education, training, interaction and collaboration. Following the tours at 6:30 and 7 p.m., there will be a presentation on ideas for the new center and an open dialogue for feedback and comments.
North Fulton is establishing a culture of innovation quickly. With many IT and technology-focused companies relocating here, the region must become a destination not only for businesses but also for families, individuals, residents and tourists to visit and learn. The key to maintaining this mission is through education and collaboration.
Technology is not only the way most people communicate, but it also has helped reveal remarkable discoveries, medical advancements and life-changing procedures. The developments have really just begun and North Fulton could lead the way. The IT and innovation fields are rapidly growing and the jobs of the future depend on it. To understand the future of innovation, North Fulton must stay connected to the entire legacy.
The Apple Pop-Up Exhibit features educational and interactive tours of artifacts and moments that changed history and paved the way for technology. Besides the tour, COMA is establishing itself as a place for all groups and individuals to experience technology; what it is, what it was and what it will be. Through offering programs and educational opportunities including Boy Scout Programs, iPad training, teacher events, festivals, rotating exhibits and private tours, COMA is opening the doors to the future of technology in North Fulton.
