MORE THAN MEETS THE “I”
Exploring the new frontiers of biology, health, robotics & technology

October 9, 2014—January 19, 2015

Brooklyn Children’s Museum is excited to introduce young scientists to a number of interactive exhibits that inspire learning through a variety of topics including photomicrography, molecular biology, nanotechnology, robotics, and 3D printing. Join us and discover the amazing micro-world that exists beyond what we can see with our naked eyes. Find out how our new knowledge of science helps make the world a better place.


 

MOLECULES AND HEALTH: THE SHAPE OF SCIENCE

You can’t see molecules, but they’re everywhere! Become a molecular detective and discover how molecules shape our bodies, our medicines and our world. Molecules come in different shapes and sizes. Their shapes tell us a lot about what they do and how they interact with each other. These microscopic building blocks make up everything around you—your body, the air you breathe, and even this exhibit.

NYU POLYTECHNIC SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING ROBOTIC FISH EXHIBIT

Ever wonder what life is like through the eyes of a fish? This program puts kids and adults behind the wheel of robotic fish that can swim alone, school in groups, and compete among each other under the sea! The exhibit features a shoal of robotic fish remotely controlled by iPads to attract and engage local visitors and resonate globally.
