Star Wars®: Where Science Meets Imagination
Open during Otronicon for a Limited Engagement
Developed by the Museum of Science, Boston in collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd., Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination is a 10,000 square-foot exhibit that explores the fantasy technologies depicted in the Star Wars films, the real science behind them, and the current research that may someday lead to remarkable real-life versions of the technologies seen in the film series.
With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and presented by Bose Corporation, Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination is the first exhibition to display costumes and props from all six Star Wars films with real-world technologies. The exhibit includes extensive video interviews with filmmakers, scientists and engineers; and hands-on components, including two large Engineering Design Labs, where visitors can build and test their own speeders and robots.
