Doctor Geek's Science Fair

On September 27, 2014, The South Florida Museum is proud to present Doctor Geek’s Science Fair! A unique blend of science and fiction, Doctor Geek’s Science Fair combines a classic science fiction convention with a science fair.  In addition to the hands on activities, panels, exhibitors and vendors, students from all around have come to compete in our inaugural Applied Geekdom competition.

 

An all access pass that includes the planetarium presentations and the performance by The Ken Spivey Band (a Doctor Who Steampunk band) can be purchased in advance for $10.  Hurry tickets are limited.  Get your tickets today and enjoy a full day expo where you will have the opportunity to explore the future that is, the future that was and the future that has not yet come to pass.

How do you celebrate the holidays when you love your job? Create a holiday episode of course! Fresh from the successes of the most recent public appearances Doctor Geek and his staff must explain the science behind Santa Clause before Claire’s strike team reaches the North Pole.

With our successful first season now behind us, and season two already in production, now is the time to address our first science fair.  What would a Doctor Geek’s Science Fair look like?  Well, just like everything else we do, it will be a mix of both science and fiction.  It will be a fiction convention mixed with elements of a classic science fair.

When you think of science fairs and world’s fairs, you probably think of the 1964 World’s Fair.  Thanks to the various Disney attractions that originated at this event, it is often thought of as a bright example of the imaginative use of technology.  The 1964 World’s Fair has made such a strong impact that it was even the template for the 1943 and 1974 Stark Expos.

Stay tuned as we continue this 50 year legacy with our own Science Fair in 2014.
