The Rockwell Automation Allen-Bradley Automation Fair will take place October 27-28 in Orlando, FL. Attendees can choose from five industry tracks: automotive, food and beverage, life sciences, packaging and material handling, and water/wastewater. The fair features technical sessions, tutorial sessions, hands-on labs, and more than 100 exhibitors. If that doesn't tempt the engineer's palate, attendees may take advantage of the special events, which include a brewing symposium and Walt Disney World backstage tours.
The Space Kid, 11, will be one of the first civilians to have his design manufactured in space by NASA, thanks to the City X Project, which inspires kids to think about new 3D-printed inventions that could be useful for humans living in space.
