Tech Companies Go to the Birds

The National Aviary is partnering with the Pittsburgh Technology Council to help create more up-to-date exhibitions and stage performances. The move comes in conjunction with Phase One of the aviary's $23 million dollar expansion project, which should be completed in the spring of 2010. Erin Estell, the Manager of Community Outreach at the aviary, says they need the advice of the Technology Council because their own technological knowledge is quite limited. Estell says some features of the expansion would be an indoor theater with cutting-edge lights and sounds, along with improved exhibits. The Technology Council will tour the aviary January 26th to brainstorm and develop ideas.
