Sci-Fi Summer

Saturday, Aug 18, 2018 from 12:00pm to 2:00pm


Take pictures with a sci-fi character—such as an alien, robot, or astronaut. Journey through the museum and explore the Intergalactic Maker Space. Build a rocket out of recycled materials, create a rover to explore a distant planet, design your own robot friend, and more. Take inspiration from space-themed activities to create your own planetary craft.

Then, check out The Strong’s Rockets, Robots, and Ray Guns exhibit. Back by popular demand, the exhibit explores the ways that science-fiction books, toys, movies, and video games have captured people’s imaginations and shaped the way they play. Play a giant version of the classic arcade game Space Invaders, check out the oldest toy ray gun ever created, direct a remote-controlled robotic ball through an obstacle course, launch a paper rocket into space, and more.
