CAMBRIDGE, MA—It’s not every day that you can see so many technology and engineering breakthroughs in one place that are destined for outer space, ships at sea, self-driving cars, the doctor’s office and fast-moving drones. But those innovations and more will be on display at EP17, Draper’s annual technology showcase.
EP17 is open to the public October 4–7, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 555 Technology Square in Cambridge. Visitors to EP17 will be offered a behind the scenes look at the bold solutions Draper’s engineers and scientists have developed—from space travel to accelerating the cure for cancer—and be invited to immerse themselves in interactive demonstrations and meet the experts at the forefront of technology.
EP17 will spark the interest and imagination of attendees from technical experts to members of the general public who want a sneak peek into the future of technology. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage Draper engineers regarding cutting-edge technologies—technologies that, if successful, will improve lives, change industries and push the boundaries of what is possible.
Kaigham J. Gabriel, President and CEO, remarked, “Draper celebrates innovation at EP17 and invites the community to join us in learning about the bold changes coming to our world. This year we will spotlight innovations in medicine, space exploration, self-driving cars, autonomous drones and many other products and technologies shaping the future. As you’ll see at EP17, that future is closer than you might think.”
No reservation is required to visit EP17 during public hours: Wednesday-Saturday, Oct. 4-7, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Draper is a ten-minute walk from the Kendall/MIT subway station. Parking, for a fee, is available at many nearby lots, including in the Technology Square Garage, Technology Square, Cambridge, Mass.
