Tribble-makers: Bringing an alien pet to life using STEAM

Join us Saturday, August 13th at 11am in room 253B for an exciting panel discussion.

In a presentation designed to inspire tomorrow's creators to make their dreams come true for themselves, Science Division co-founders Kayleigha and Jay Zawacki will share the process of building an app-enabled Tribble (an alien pet) from Star Trek™ using Arduino micro controller parts, internet tutorials, and the power of determination. Learn how a living room science project inspired by a childhood dream grew from a pile of wires and electronic components into a licensed Star Trek™ pet that you can control with your smart device. This panel will demonstrate that with Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math and a whole lot of passion, anything is possible!

After the panel, come say hello and ask questions at Booth 1421 in the vendor's room.

Co-founder Kayleigha, a white woman with long brown hair, smiles and looks up at a fluffy silver Tribble, which she balances delicately on her head as she laughs. She wears a yellow command uniform from the Enterprise in Discovery.

Testimonials

"The trouble with most Tribble toys is that they’re more like furry decorations than futuristic pets. That changes with Science Division’s new line of interactive Tribbles..."

Yahoo! Entertainment

"This is, at least in our opinion, the end-all-be-all Tribble you need for your Star Trek collection."

Bleeding Cool

"You could say that Science Division’s toy is the Ferrari of tribble toys. "

TrekMovie.com

"In short, these Tribbles are so much like the real thing; the only thing it won’t do is multiply and take over your home!"

Trek Report

"[Science Division Tribbles] are softer than Harry Mudd's hairline! No Star Trek collection is complete without one of these fantastic little fuzzies guarding its ranks! They're seriously unlike anything you've ever seen!"
