Beginning Saturday, May 25, the Indiana State Museum will host Star Wars®: Where Science Meets Imagination, presented by Bose Corporation®. The exhibition explores the Star Wars films, the real science behind them, and the research that may someday lead to real-life versions of the technologies seen in the films. The exhibit also features props and costumes from all six Star Wars films.
“Many people are expecting this to be a science fiction exhibition, but it’s really a science and technology exhibition using the appeal of Star Wars to teach people about science, technology, engineering and math,” Indiana State Museum President and CEO Tom King said. “This exhibition gives visitors an inside look at the Star Wars universe alongside its real world science counterpart.”
Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination has two main theme areas. “Getting Around” focuses on transportation in the films as well as new and future modes of travel. The “Robots and People” section looks at the relationship between robots and humans on screen and in the real world.
Tickets are $10 in addition to general admission. Advance ticket reservations are recommended. For more information about the exhibit, special events, online ticket sales and more, visit indianamuseum.org.
