Public Opening of Science Fiction, Science Future

February 10, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

On Saturday, February 10, MOSH invites you to explore the future of tomorrow in our newest traveling exhibition, Science Fiction Science Future.

Let your imagination run wild with a vision of the future you thought only existed in fiction. If you thought teleportation, holograms, invisibility and mind control were only in the movies – think again. The exhibition will allow you to move objects with your mind, turn invisible right before your eyes, be mimicked by a life-like robot and see augmented reality in action.

With interactive, engaging exhibits that challenge the mind and body, and a stunning visual environment, this exhibition sets the stage for a unique journey of science exploration, curiosity and discovery.

Opening Day Activities (10 a. m. — 2 p. m.):

  • Museum-wide Scavenger Hunt
  • Coding Unplugged! Learn the tricks behind computer programming through a series of games.
  • Join in the festivities and dress as your favorite sci-fi character!

Special Guests:

  • Forge Co. – This local business will be on-site to talk about 3D printing.
  • Main Jacksonville Public Library Maker Space – Join JPL Makers to test your skills at robotics.
  • 501st Legion – A volunteer based group dedicated to celebrate and promote the longevity of the Star Wars universe. Members of the 501st Legion will be at MOSH from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
