Tallahassee, Fla. (WTXL) - Florida State, Tallahassee Community College and Florida A&M will co-host the second annual Discovery on parade.

What do new cancer treatments, wine tastings, web-based suicide prevention, artistic masterpieces, oyster shucking and robots have in common?

Besides being just a few of the countless forms of research and creative activity taking place at Tallahassee’s three institutions of higher education, they also represent a small sampling of the more than 60 exhibits ready for display during the upcoming, first-of-its-kind Discovery on Parade event.

Jointly hosted by FAMU, FSU and TCC, this community event will provide a unique preview of new and exciting inventions, discoveries and innovations making their way into the world.

Discovery on Parade will also feature information on new and existing companies created through research endeavors, live technology demonstrations by researchers and their students, and presentations about the objectives of select facilities at FAMU, FSU and TCC.

Discovery on Parade will take place Tuesday, February 7th 5-8:30 p.m. at 555 W. Pensacola St. Tallahassee, Fla.   

The event is free and open to the public, requiring only a simple online registration found at http://www.discoveryonparade.com/.
