Spring 2016 Newsletter

Message from our Curator

Spring Forward!  Welcome to the first quarterly Innovation Hangar newsletter!  

It's been an exciting time at iHangar, as we continue to curate "intentional collisions" between innovators, students, and the over 700,000 guest that we've welcomed to our iconic space.  Early on, we envisioned a medley of drones, virtual reality, and live demos of new inventions, all contained in a community space dedicated to exploration and imagination.
Now, just a little over a year after we opened our doors, our dreams are coming true!  With a tremendous infusion of creative leaders to our team, and the weekly introduction of new exhibits and activities, iHangar is coming into its own!

If you've already visited, you know there's nothing quite like our space, and with the addition of our Flight Deck co-working space, a number of you are now making this "your space" as well. And there's room for more!

Below, you'll find a great summary of the latest additions to iHangar.  This Saturday April 16th, we invite you to join our first Community Day!  You'll get a chance to go hands-on with our exhibits, and to check out all the activities in our community space.  This is just the beginning of our ambitious roadmap.  Our goal is that you'll see something new every time you visit, so come soon and come often, and help us make Innovation Hangar the place to be for dreamers and doers throughout the year!

nnovation Hangar is where Innovation takes flight, so join us as we continue to soar!

See you soon!
