Featured/Traveling Exhibit

Opening May 19: Bionic Me

Control a computer using the power of your mind, race against a Paralympian, and see how a bionic eye works in Scitech’s new exhibition, Bionic Me. 

This Scitech-built exhibition explores the inventive and ingenious medical and industrial breakthroughs that have helped enhance the human experience, and contains both hands-on and full-body experiences. 

Genome

Do you have your mother’s dimples? Or your father’s hairline? What makes us, us? And how much of it actually sets us apart from every other living thing on Earth? Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code begins to unravel the mystery behind the complete set of instructions needed for every living thing on Earth to grow and function: the genome.
Discover how your genome could be the key to maximizing your future quality of life as genomic science helps open the way to more personalized healthcare.
See yourself in a new way: as an individual, as a member of a family, and as part of the diversity of life on Earth.
Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code was made possible in part by financial support secured by the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health

Speed

Developed by Scitech in Perth, Australia and produced by Imagine Exhibitions, SPEED: Science in Motion, replicates the high-octane action of the Formula 1 racetrack, complete with pit lane, workshop and physical testing environments. This immersive experience is designed to unravel the cutting edge science and technology behind professional motor sports. Visitors can challenge themselves through hands-on exhibits and displays, to see if they have the skills, fitness and reactions to race at over 125 miles per hour.
