Use the force, go back to the future, phone home, and get beamed up during an evening of sci-fi exploration inspired by galaxies far, far away. Get hands-on with the science that makes the fiction fantastic at this intergalactic event.
Labs, lectures and experiences at this Social Science will include:
Represent your ultimate fandom when you create a custom wearable science fiction fan button.

Think you have what it takes to become a Jedi? Grab seven of your friends or fellow Social Science attendees and test your agility, stamina and reaction time as you jump and duck under two moving foam mechanical arms. If you get knocked down, you’re still a padawan.
