The Center for Technology & Innovation is an all-volunteer organization.
Development of TechWorks! is a Center initiative to showcase regional technology in action - an effort that begins from the inside out. The 30,000 sf vintage brick ice cream factory will be renovated with new additions of the South Entrance Energy Exhibit demonstrating emerging technologies, a rooftop River View Terrace, and the Garden of Ideas, a sculpture park in the forecourt. Significant progress is being made collecting and revitalizing iconic devices in the Vintage IBM Computing Center, the Hall of Ones and Zeroes, and the Link Simulation Workshop, including the Apollo Lunar Module Simulator, on long-term restoration loan from the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum.
TechWorks! is located in the vintage Binghamton Ice Cream Company factory, built in 1912, expanded in 1946 and 1972, on the waterfront in downtown Binghamton, at 321 Water Street, Binghamton, two blocks north of the Lost Dog Cafe and Doubletree Hilton Hotel, and just north of two historic railroad trestles. Look for the colorful floodwall mural - Four Seasons Along the Chenango - by JoAnne Arnold (2015).
