3D printed pancakes, liquid nitrogen cereal and electrical Play-Doh.
These are a number of the actions at Sue’s Tech Home, a STEM-inspired pop-up exhibit go by Randi Zuckerberg. The idea hopes to get children excited about science and tech.
Zuckerberg, who is the CEO of Zuckerberg Media and sister of Facebook (FB, Tech30) founder Mark Zuckerberg, has generated 25 experiences inside the space.

The traveling exhibit kicked off in Chattanooga, Tennessee earlier this season and recently opened its second position at Cornell Tech’s campus in New York City. It’ll be open through January 1.
Kids can learn how to code working with robots, print 3D variations of s’mores and pancakes, eat treats made with liquid nitrogen, and help to make electronic dough buzz and light up. The exhibit also offers VR experience by the NBA, permitting children to see 360-level basketball game titles and behind the scenes footage of groups and players. There’s also a physical “driverless car” idea that can be navigated through a maze of obstacles on a big game board.
“We have a ton of stations that introduce kids and family members to tech — a lot of them without screen time,” Zuckerberg advised CNN Tech’s Laurie Segall.
The idea for Sue’s Tech Kitchen started as a cookbook, but Zuckerberg wanted to create a hands-on experience to make tech even more approachable for families.
“I think a whole lot of parents out there are really overwhelmed by tech,” she said. “I am hoping people come into Sue’s Tech Home and see there are hundreds of ways to introduce your family to tech that don’t involve screens.”

This can be a latest effort from Zuckerberg to get young girls enthusiastic about STEM, inspired by the frustration she felt as “the only woman in the room” while employed in Silicon Valley.
“I’ve as well done a whole lot of research that presents that it’s really around third and fourth grade that we commence to lose girls in tech,” she said.
“[With] everything that I do, I possess in the rear of my brain that third and fourth grade girl. What may i do for her that’s going to just simply spark that delight around tech and research?”
Later on, Zuckerberg want to create permanent locations for the concept, like a sit-down cafe. Her perspective: family members could sit at linked tables and order 3D-printed food.
Sue’s Tech Kitchen will come to 10 cities around the U.S. in 2018. Admission is $5 per person.
