Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Randi Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Zuckerberg Media, will debut Sue’s Tech Kitchen on July 28 in Chattanooga.  Sue’s Tech Kitchen is a tech-fueled wonderland for the mouth and mind, featuring a STEM-inspired adventure for the whole family to empower kids to engage with tomorrow’s technologies and revolutionize family dining in the process, said officials. 

Envisioned by Ms. Zuckerberg and designed by NASA scientist Sam Pfister, Sue’s Tech Kitchen is an space that combines dining and technology while immersing guests in a tech playground, allowing them to experience cutting-edge technologies and enjoy an interactive dining experience. Diners will be able to eat in the digital age, while composing music with their food, 3D printing their dessert, coding videos game with candy and so more. 

“I’m always encouraging parents to embrace technology into their family’s lives in an interactive and healthy way instead of being afraid of it,” says New York Times bestselling author, Ms. Zuckerberg, “So when I was at a restaurant with my two boys, I thought ‘how cool would it be if a drone could deliver our food? Or if we could code with candy?’ As a result, Sue’s Tech Kitchen is coming to life, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be bringing it first to Chattanooga.” 

After visiting Chattanooga’s Innovation District and seeing how positively the city embraces entrepreneurship and how they foster start-ups, Ms. Zuckerberg knew immediately it was the ideal place to launch Sue’s Tech Kitchen and BETA test the technology. 

Sue’s Tech Kitchen will make its debut at the Tomorrow Building in Chattanooga on Friday, July 28.  After a week in Chattanooga, Sue’s Tech Kitchen will then commence a national tour that will run into 2018. Fans interested in experiencing Sue’s Tech Kitchen BETA will have the opportunity to vote to bring the roadshow to their cities or towns.
