Innovation & Engineering Weekend: Building the City of the Future
February 21, 2015 @ 10:00 am - February 22, 2015 @ 6:00 pm UTC-5
It’s time to innovate at the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science! The Museum is hosting its Innovation & Engineering Weekend, a celebration themed around “Building the City of the Future,” featuring two days of programming. Sponsored by Wells Fargo, Ryder and The Knight Foundation, the celebration will provide unlimited opportunities to learn about architecture and design, energy, environment, and transportation challenges and solutions for cities where people are at the heart of the ideas.
Plant seeds and discover urban gardening and hydroponics, compete in building challenges with local engineers, construct furniture out of recycled materials, explore the world of tomorrow with new research on immersive 3D environments and participate in various hands-on Maker activities. Visitors will also have the unique opportunity to share their thoughts and visions on how to improve Miami’s urban landscape and build the city of the future with leaders from Gehl Studio, a global urban design firm.
Children 12 years old and younger are free with paid adult admission.
