The Tech's Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination

I’m one of the people you might meet when our museum proves itself so inspirational that you decide a membership would be a good purchase. I work for The Tech because I believe in our mission, to inspire the innovator in everyone, and because the corporate culture draws people of a similar mindset: creative, fun, and sometimes a little geeky.

We’ve hosted several traveling exhibitions since I started with The Tech, including ones about Genghis Khan, the history of science in the Islamic world, the human body, and the MythBusters. Though I have enjoyed them all, when word came that we were to present “Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination,” I flashed back to my childhood, to the previews I saw for Star Wars a few months before the movie was released in 1977.

The exhibition hall has been strictly off-limits to all but a few key people during setup. I would occasionally hear stories about certain artifacts being unpacked, or about how cool the Millennium Falcon Experience is.
