Frankenstein: 200 Years of LIFE
When?Start time: Saturday 10:30am (13 January)
End time: Saturday 3:30pm (13 January)
Celebrate the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley's groundbreaking work of science fiction, "Frankenstein" on Saturday, January 13th from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at The Bakken Museum.
Learn how science inspired the fiction and create your own monsters with activities, educational shows, eye-popping exhibits and a visit from the author and her monster!
Experts from The Bakken Museum will share history and creativity behind the story of Frankenstein, and the Great Hall will feature a collection of works inspired by the tale from artist Barry Moser.
You can even participate in an alternate reality game that immerses players in a modern-day Laboratory for Innovation and Fantastic Explorations (L.I.F.E.). This fictional storyimagines what might happen if a character named Dr. Tori Frankenstein picked up where her ancestor Victor Frankenstein left off.
This event is part of a one-in-a-lifetime celebration that includes science and technology centers across the country and features interactive learning experiences developed by a national team led by Arizona State University including educators from The Bakken Museum, distributed in collaboration with the NISE Network.
Activities are free with museum admission, and Bakken Museum members get in free.
