Tech companies both big and small will be putting their latest gadgets on display for all to see at Mountain View's annual Technology Showcase on Tuesday. Now in its fifth year, the city tech expo has developed into an annual celebration of the cutting-edge firms that have come to shape life in Mountain View.
This year's event will feature nearly 30 exhibits from companies and organizations based in Mountain View. This group include large tech players, such as Google, Facebook and NASA Ames, as well as some newcomers that didn't exist a year ago.
Tech Showcase organizers say most exhibits will feature free, hands-on demonstrations suitable for attendees young or old. Families with young children are encouraged to visit a special kids zone set up by the Mountain View Library with a variety of science-based activities.
The free event is scheduled to run from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, July 16, at the Civic Center Plaza, located at 500 Castro St. More information about the event can be found at mountainview.gov.
