Wonder of science at EXPO


BETTINA HANSEN / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Adelle Davies, 6, of Seattle, and her twin brother, Justin, make faces Saturday in Microsoft Research's telepresence booth at the Science EXPO Day at Seattle Center. Telepresence is not just capturing an image of a person, but also capturing their shape, for more realistic online communication in real time. Science EXPO Day is a festive, one-day event featuring more than 150 booths, activities, demonstrations and performances that celebrate science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and show how integral they are to the region's culture and prosperity.

The demonstration was to show kids that light can be turned into useful electricity, and that solar cells can be used to power things as small as electronic toys.
