Symmes Hall of Science
Frankenstein is a modern myth that explores human creativity, societal responsibility and scientific ethics. As we approach the 200th anniversary of this timeless classic novel, these themes continue to resonate today.
Join us for a fun-filled afternoon of hands-on activities designed to prompt conversation and reflection about responsible innovation, inspired by themes raised in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

- Automata: Make a moving mechanical device that imitates the movement of a living thing
