The Future of Social Media 

Social media is now ubiquitous in the US. Facebook still dominates in terms of shear numbers, but young people are actively opting out of larger platforms for narrower platforms like Snapchat and Instagram. Mobile allows always-on connections, but wearables, the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence are making social a larger part of our lives than ever before. How does one keep up with these trends? What’s next for social media? Come hear from a panel of experts as they give their own forecasts for what the future holds.

Making Expo

Come see creative digital projects, video games, DIY experiments, Robotics, 3D printers, or other Maker Projects at the Red Stick Maker Expo. We want to inspire the next generation to look at Science, Technology & Art in new ways and come up with innovative ways to solve problems. Engineering is not only about building bridges, but it can be used to design new music, new approaches in digital media and new tech that you wear with flair. Art is not only for drawing pretty pictures, but rather Artists are discoverers as well as creators. The Maker Expo is a place for people to learn about new opportunities developing right here in Baton Rouge with a showcase of projects from students and industry leaders in the digital realm.
