Randi Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Zuckerberg Media, is bringing the family-friendly, tech-infused Sue’s Tech Kitchen (STK) to Richmond. Conceptualized by Zuckerberg and designed by a team of tech experts, engineers, and scientists, Sue’s Tech Kitchen features technologies from all corners of the modern imagination, empowering kids and adults to engage with tomorrow’s technologies. Guests can expect interactive edible experiences for all ages that encourage healthy relationships with technology and inspire kids to embrace STEM skills in a fun and collaborative “snack-hack” concept.

Tickets available for purchase at Sue’s Tech Kitchen.
On the heels of successful pop-up events in Cedar Park, Texas, and Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, the national tour, which was announced last year, will continue on August 10 in Richmond and will go through 2018, bringing Sue’s Tech Kitchen to a total of nine US cities, five of which are in partnership with ShopCore Properties.
“When Randi explained her new tech concept to me, I couldn’t wait to bring it to West Broad Village,” said ShopCore Properties President and CEO, Luke Petherbridge. “We are committed to bringing innovative and educational experiences to our centers and are thrilled to be partnering with Sue’s Tech Kitchen. As a parent, I understand the importance of introducing children to the world of technology, and I am pleased to be able to bring this opportunity to Richmond and the surrounding communities.”
Experiences will include fan favorites, such as 3D Printed S’Mores, Coding With Candy and a Subzero Stand teaching the science of liquid nitrogen, as well as brand new features, such as RoboKitchen, Drone Drops, and more. Sue’s Tech Kitchen will also celebrate the arts as a valuable component of education by collaborating with Davenport Theatricals to present a 360 virtual reality experience of their latest production, Once on This Island, winner of the 2018 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical. VR technology will place participants centerstage to discover the Broadway production’s in-the-round power.
To further enhance the STEM-infused experience, Sue’s Tech Kitchen will continue to celebrate local tech luminaries as part of their ongoing effort to promote nationwide innovation. Zuckerberg Media and Sue’s Tech Kitchen inventors and leaders will be on-hand to greet audiences and discuss the future of tech with local STEM enthusiasts.
“We are so excited to continue our Sue’s Tech Kitchen national tour in these soon-to-be major tech markets,” says STK creator, Randi Zuckerberg. “Making sure kids and families have access to the tools they need to explore STEM education has always been a driving force for us, and as we continue our stops, we’re developing more interactive stations that are exciting our guests and teaching them critical skills at the same time.”
STK launched its first BETA “taste” in 2017 in Chattanooga’s ‘Tomorrow Building,’ and continued with their Holiday SpecTECHular pop-up in New York City, which included guest lecturers, new stations, and more for kids and adults to enjoy.
