Droids, Stormtroopers and Jedi Knights unite! The Tech Museum of Innovation in downtown San Jose is featuring Star Wars®: Where Science Meets Imagination through February 23, 2014. This 10,000 square foot exhibit includes more than 80 authentic costumes, models, and props from the Star Wars movie series. In conjunction with the exhibits, The Tech is featuring a variety of special events and workshops in order to highlight the science behind the light sabres, hovercrafts, and other futuristic technologies shown in the films.
One upcoming event that seems particularly fun for families is Jedi Nights (presented by ScholarShare College Savings Plan). On Friday, January 17 from 6:30-9:30 pm, guests can view the Stars Wars exhibit and get photos taken with Stormtroopers, Droids, R2-D2, and other Star Wars characters. Families are encouraged to dress in their favorite Star Wars costumes for this event. Additionally, you can create a passport, bounce a dry ice-filled bubble, tinker with the circuitry behind light sabres, build a contraption to help the Ewoks escape, and more!
Admission includes the exhibit and costs $22 for adults and seniors and $12 for children between the ages of 3 and 17.
