From May 5 to September 5, 2016, visitors to Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry are invited to explore “DARPA: Redefining Possible,” an exciting new exhibit that offers an in-depth and interactive look behind the curtain at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
The 5,000-square-foot exhibit features displays and activities for all ages, including:
The exhibit prominently features Atlas—the 6-foot-2-inch humanoid robot designed to navigate rough outdoor terrain and provide assistance after natural disasters—and Spot, the robotic dog.
Attendees can also traverse an immersive, 100-foot timeline of DARPA-supported technological breakthroughs, from unmanned aerial vehicles and x-planes to chip-scale atomic clocks, manmade lightning, and an Ebola vaccine grown in tobacco plants.
Entrance to “DARPA: Redefining Possible” is included in the price of museum admission.
