Science Fiction Science Future

14484703_10154442615101145_7425799612937787987_nThis week’s Friday Field trip was to the Springs Preserve and the installation of the traveling show, Science Fiction Science Future. It’s a hands-on installation geared toward the kids, but I’m fine having a play date. You pick up a wristband and throughout the exhibit you can scan it for additional information. It’s fun, but not continued all the way through.

Anyway, the exhibit is filled with lasers and robots and scanners and holograms. Lots of things to push and crank and see.

I really liked the video of what different decades thought the future would be. It goes back to the late 19th century. Some of what they wanted has come to be, some of it, not yet. But, that’s one of the great things about speculative fiction, it’s what we believe might happen. And, based on the concepts of Law of Attraction, I think the speculation creates the future. It was a nice field trip.

I also wandered the gardens and visited the Butterfly Habitat. That’s always a pleasant experience.
