Alien Worlds and Androids is a look into cutting edge science taking place right now and the world of science fiction. Guest of all ages can learn about many topics when science meets science fiction in this family friendly interactive experience. These varying exhibits have information about what inspires science fiction writers, the different types of microbes present in human bodies, robots, the solar system and so much more.

During opening weekend museum members enjoyed this exhibit free of charge as well as members only activities on Saturday from 10a.m. to noon. These activities included crafts like making their own alien mask and photo opportunities at the Constellation Station. Star Wars characters were on hand for photo opportunities with guests. It was refreshing to see children excitedly playing with robotic arms, circuits, batteries and robots. The replicas of Iron Man, C-3PO from Star Wars, T-800 from The Terminator and Gort from The Day the Earth Stood Still and Robby the Robot bring science fiction characters to the public and exhibits like The Black Hole and Strange Creatures make learning about science fun.
