Technology writer, Forbes Contributor (Makers, Inventors, Small Business) and friend to STEAM Junction, TJ McCue visited with Bennett Harris this summer to talk about the innovative HP Sprout PC being used in the makerspace.

Marketed as a tool for creative education, the computer utilizes touch screen technology on two surfaces, including the Touch Mat that doubles as a second display. 3D scanning and Stop Motion Capture are just two of the functionalities that encourage creativity and learning.
