Adler After Dark: Weird Science

  • Adler Planetarium 1300 South Lake Shore Drive Chicago, IL, 60605 United States (map)

While they may not be creating a cyborg significant other, there is still a lot of “weird science” to explore this fall at Adler After Dark! Check out the latest developments in medical and space robotics with the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and IIT’s Robotics Lab, nanotechnology, astronomy, and more. Learn how to control someone else’s arm with your brain (yes, you heard that right) with a special talk by Dr. Greg Gage, founder of DIY neuroscience kits Backyard Brains. And don’t miss a special show-and-tell from Friends of the Webster Institute who will be sharing odd objects from their personal collections and the weird stories that go along with them.
